Westminster, will be placed on the 
market this autumn. There the com- 
pany will locate Its car-building and 
machine shops.'as well as lay out what

parture for the east of Mr. Donald M.

Following an inspection of the town- 
site during the week by Mr. Mann 
and the Other . visiting officials, in-

chief engineer; to undertake immedi- 
ately the work of laying out termin- 
als, with provision for a car-building 
plant and machine shops, 
assistants will be on the 
week. (It was explained 
to the large amount of 
quired for railway purposes the resi- 
dential and business portion of the 
townsite will, have to conform to the 
plans for railway requirements. There 
will be ample room for all ,these, as 
the townsite embraces an area of 
about two thousand acres, including 
a water frontage of two and one half 
miles along the Fraser river, above 
the Fraser river brldjrer 

It is expected that three weeks will 
be occupied in laying out the yards,

Discovery of Jawbone Thought

Kendall's Murder — Found 
Far From House 

SANTA ROSA, Cala.. Aug. 6. — In a 
canyon three-quarters -nf. a mi l e from 
the home- of -tha-" Kendal 1 fandly there 
was found this afternoon an upper 
jaw bone, apparently that of a y >uns

monarch, Were standing amidships on 
l.iptons yacht, the Shamrock, one of J 
the topmasts broke and fell to the, 
deck. King Alfonso became greatly: 
agitated and uttered an exclamation j 
that caused his hearers to believe that 
he thought the fall of the mast was 
not an accident. Those who saw the 
EpSr drop declare It was , miraculous | 
that none of the party was injured. 
The Spanish ruler has become ex- 
tremely nervous following the acci- 


tor?' sites. Messrs. McKenzie and 
Mann have far reaching plans in con- 
nection with the townsite. Supervis- 
ion of laying out the townsite has been 
entrusted to T. S. Darling of Winni- 
peg, assistant land commissioner of 
the railway company. Mr. Darling 
has 'been here for several days con- 
ferring with. Messrs. Mann and David- 
son. He left last, night for Stewart, 
Portland Canal district.— to place on 
the market the "portion of the new 
townsite there owned by Mr. Mann 
and his associates.

District Attorney Lea said that he 
considered finding this bit of anatomy 
the best yet secured, in theTdentifica- 
tion of the victim. The back teeth 
on either side had been filled with 
nmalguiu. The front teeth are "mTss- 
Ing and apparently they had been 
knocked out. •. 

! The find would indicate that Tom 
Kendall's body was not cremate*. 
The jaw was found by Newton J.

the spot in the canyon where the 
torso of a woman, believed to be that 
of the mother, Mrs. Eura Kendall, was 
found earlier in the week.

Government Secretly Diverts 
Torpedo Boat Funds to Con-

BERLIN, Aug. 6.— Germany is cre- 
ating a huge fleet of submarines under 
a veil of secrecy by devoting a large 
proportion of the funds figuring In tlie 
official naval estimates of the last 
year or two as expended for torpedo-,

Lralnlng of students and testtets of th< 

tielief <>f professors before their- ap- 
pointment and their supervision after- 
wards, is known to be on the pro- 
gramme for a thorough threshing out. 
The Question is, of course, one whicli 
, ctends far beyond the mere matter of 
the work of Prof. Jackson, which awak- 
ened such a lively discussion during the . 
Toronto conference this year, and is 
one, of great importance to the Metho- 
dist church at large. _ i 
Increased Salaries* 
The proposal that the ffrur year.*' 
term of pastoral office be extended Is a 
question which naturally arouses the 
special interest of pastors throughout 
the church, and so does the question of 
enlargement of annuities. At many of 
i r annual church gatherings In East- 
ern Canada this 1 year the question of 
ministers*- salaries was one of the sub- 
jects of discussion and It lias been 
pointed sut Jthat ** aitesuU: of the in 
Sufficient remuneration received by 
clergymen the work of the cburch was 
suffering. Not only, it was argued, 
were iuai.\ of the ablest and most ener- 
getic meniiM is of the: ministerial pro- 
fession abandoning their charges and 
entering secular catlings, but desirable 
young men Were being deterred from 
studying the ministry because of the 
ittei lack of any financial future in it. 
Thus, the question concerning the sti- 
pends of tiie clergy. Is sate to receive. 
Us due consideration. Then connected 
with tills there is also the question of 
the establishing upon a firmer basis the 
superannuation fund. • 
Ol particular Interest to Toronto pas- 

,,,,,, thflugjl Oi Wide general Interest, to 
the church as well, is the proposal to 
establish a new church deportment, to 
be called the Department of Financial, 
Education, and Membership Leaving, 
with a paid general secretary. 

This schemei which .owes its origin 
to a plan put first into practice In Trin-

At Friday night's meeting, it-is said, 
it was decided to ask the engineer for 
his resignation, giving him » yrar's 
alary in advance. Mr. Smith took 
up his duties with the iit\ oh April

tnd was almost tiie unanimous choice 
of the council. 

Mr. Smith stat»vl yesterday that the

plete surprise .to him. What action 
he a*411 take he has not yet det ermined 
upon, but he asserts that the mayor

and council have no reason to dould. 
hi*, e-fticlency as an engineer. That 
there has 'Been delay fn proceeding 
with city works .\lr. Smith admits, but 
the delay has occurred through the 
wrong methods followed by the coun- 
cil In passing bylaws without following 
the strict • letter of .the law. In eonae- 
'pience a large nuntber of loial lm - 
provemerii bylaws r>ass<'d la>>t year and 
early this yar. before .Mr. Smith took 
office, are now being stnUS'htened out 
py the city solh itor. and until the 
measures arc properly drawn and pas- 
sed again the works proposed to 1"-' 
done under them will have to wait. 
Rut Mr. i^mJth cannot- see why he 
should: 'be blamed for a condition or 
affairs for which he is not. responsible. 

Number of Worka 

On the other hand he points to n 
number of works completed this year 
j by his department, and he declares 
that such work has be»m well done and 
« 111 compare very favorably with work 
of a similar nature done previous to 
r his appointment. There has been de- 
lay on Douglas street, but that was 
lowing to the laying by the contractors 
of the underground conduits for the 
j telephone system. Just as soon as 
I this work progr*>*sed far enough, work 
ion the street grading was commenced- 
As to Fort street, the delay was no 
i ilt of his. but had been occasioned 
• citrn mistakes In ■ the preliminary 
i bylaws. 

The resignation fit Mr. G. H. 'Bryson, 
I assistant city engineer, who tendered 
. his resignation a f<»w days ago was 
also discussed, .and it was the opinion 
of the committee that it should be ac- 
cepted... The committee alBO favored, 
j In the event of Mr. Smith resigning, 
the giving to the new engineer ' full ao- 
thorty to appoint his own assistants. 
A bylaw is now before the council 
amending the bylaw relating to the 
duties of municipal officers so as to 
give the city engineer full power over 
his staff. 

Mayor Morley, when questioned yes- 
terdy, refused to make any statement. 
The aldermen at Friday's neeting had 
all promised to keep the matter secret 
for.' the time being, and His Worship 
could not ,understand how It was that 
tlw> press became aware of tHe com- 
mittee's deliberations.

according to the different engineers'

they were not sure if that. Quantity off 
1 water was available- or not, whether i 
! the watershed was sufficiently Uir«<- j

appear to be any' doubt in the, mlndy 
,of Air. Adams and the government en- 
[gineer. Mr. Ashdbilt^jvith reference 
, to this, even without the tributaries. 
I toi Sooke Lake. . 
. Tour coipmittee has found out 
the watershed— ef- Sooke Lake alone is 
^'0 miles, or 12,000 acres; Leach river, j 
j with its tributaries to Sooke Lake, has 
a watershed of 36 square miles, or 23,- j 
1 220 'acres, which is more than three 
times the size, of the watershed of 
I Goldstream and Its tributaries; and 
I also, Sooke Lake has more than double 
the storage capacity of Goldstream 
{■without even putting a dam around It.

• NoW Mr. Chairman we think with 
the o-xperlence W-.C have had with Mr. 
Adams, and in going over his figures 
on the pipe lines and. finding that he 
has allowed a very good margin to 
work on, we should also have confi- 
dence in the balance of his figures end 
in talking with some of the- men that 
was under him here, they declare they 
never met a man that was more cor- 
rect in his figures; all these things are 
very much "in ^hls favor, as to the cor- 
rect amount it will cost to bring the 
Sooke lake water to Victoria. Apart 
from that, your committee has come 
to thp conclusion, after looking into 
the possibility of Sooke Lake and Us 
tributaries even at the price quoted 
by Mr. Burrwell, it would be cheaper 
compared to Goldstream when we 
think we have three times the water 
sheii and over double the storage ca- 
pacity without dainmlng and to know 
that we can develop a greater amount, 
of power and can sijl that.' power, 
which if we had Goldstream, accord- 
ing to present arrangement the city 
.has with the B„ C. -Rail way they cOuld 
not. All the .city could count on from 
that source would be the present 
agreement between, the B. C. Railway 
Company and the Esqulmalt Water 
company which Is as we .understand 
about $7,000 per annum -and i t Is not 
likely the B. C. Electric Co.. is going to 
give more when they* have plenty of 
powor elsewhere, and according to 
the presenr agreement between these 
two companies the Esquimau company 
cannot sell to any/one else, so that 
would be the position the city would 
*t>e in if they were foolish fenough no 
buy it; on the otjher hand we can de- 
velop power from' .Sooke lake and we 
are not tied, down to sell only to them . 
but have a stunding offer from them 
so that bur "position .- on the two 
schemes -are. very much in favor of 
Sooke lake from c a power proposition. 
We will give you five reasons why 
this c ommittee should recommend the 
Sooke Like and tributaries ,ae the best 
system for vvater and power to the 
<5tty" Of ' Victoria. 

First: We have more than three the water shed, and conse- 
quently we are,, safe In saying, we can 
supply a good' deal more , than double' 
the quantity of water, and power. 

Second:. The water is at present 
despite somo oT the committee trying 
to throw cold water on it by saying- 
there Is wlglers in It. Despite this 
statement, we say at present the water 
as analysed Svhfcre it should have beat 
'it, It i s better than Uoldstream after 
It comes through the nevem! ditehe* 
and when Sooke comes through the 
tunnel and ha\ e the pine line nut doa n 
at a reasonable depth,, the duality 6i 
tu. wal-r v ould be'-the very best on 

m pacific ( '' nst. 

'Third: The bulk of the money 
would he spent among the citizens in- 
'stead of going Into the pockets of the- 

•shareholders -of," the Esquimau Water 

Fourth: The expense' of keeping up 
Goldstream lakes and ditches which Is ) 
all made lakes,' not natural, will cost 
as much 'In one year as tt would cost 
to keep Sooke lake' ten years, and! 
there Is always a danger no matter I 
how Well a dam is built to give way 
and according to the way these dams 
are constructed If the top one gave 
way the others could not stand the- 
strain and we might find ourselves in I 
a hole for water, say nothing . about I 
the danger that might be done, Noth- | 
big like this could happen to Sooke 
lake. The only redeeming feature we' i 
see about Coldstream Is Its elevation I 
tbey can empty the lakes and clean I 
oiit the diims. In the face of nil this I 
we your enmmlttee~crmnot see how you 
could think of recommending the pUr- 
chasejut-ihe Esqulmalt Water Com- 
pany's "holdings at $2/100.000 when you 
can -buy double the quantity for )e_£s_ 
mpAey and less expense tor to keep up 
and nrr danger of dams giving way 
— In purchasing Goldstream we do not 
add to the city water supply: Tn ex- 
pending a less sum than would be re-/ 
quired to purchase Coldstream on de- , 
veloplng Sooke hike we would, add a 
new supply and place the city In the 
position of .having ample water for 
practically all time to come. -

At your re< 

lest I enclose figures of 
taken by me some years 
ago of the amount of water that Could 
be made available In and /around 
Sooke lake. , - -> 

One of the measurements of .course 
was phenomenal, that during October, 
1894, which was caused by 1 melting 
snow and a heavy rain. I have no 
do.ii't that some years the rainfall 
would exceed over no inches, but I am 
Only speaking of facts as I know Ihcm. 
There can be no question of the avail- 
able water supply from the water-, 
shed. The great difficulty' "would be 
the storage of this great amount of 
water, which would require a dam 
nearly 60 feet high. . /•• 

I ' would suggest driving a tunnel 
from the: 15 rn'le post on the E. & Ni 
railway direct through the mountains 
and tap, SoOke lake, at a point nearly 
half way up the lake, and at a depth 
of 25 or 30 feet below Its— surface. 
This would obviate the necessity of 
constructing- a dam at the outlet, and

Vatican's supporters th assert by force 

Some light is being thrown upon the 
nature of the crisis that seems to be 
maturing in Spain. A correspondent 
of the London Daily Telegraph says 
It Is exceedingly difficult for any one, 
not intimately acquaint ed with the 
more intimate branches of Spanish 
politics to. really understand the prob- 
lem that Is vexing that country. Strict-, 
ly speaking; . although the conflict is 

— between the Spantsh government and 
the Vatican, the question 'is not actu- 
ally a religious one; that is, no one 
< ontemplates taking Spain out of the 
sphere of influence of the Roman 
Catholic church. All that the opponr 
ents of the Vatican ask is that non- 
Cathol'lc relii;lonp mav be publicly 
practiced^,, that the religious bodies 
shall be- taxed arid shall be made sub- 
ject to the general laws of the King- 
dom.- The .Socialists. Freethinkers and 
foreigners are -credited with originat- 
ing the movement that has brought 
about the existing strained conditions. 
The Socialists object, to the monks 
and' nuns being permitted to compete 
with regular -workmen in the produc-

the throne for the descendants Of Don

and by what is called a" pragmatic-

will not let their trumps b'e" drawn

alfalfa, the succulent prolific alfalfa, 
would grow to advantage hereabouts 
or not. Charles Rodney MacDonald, a

directly therefrom., Aided by a com- 
pany or actors and actresses, every 
one' of whom has been credited with 
achieving a personal hit. .Miss Anglin 
would seem to base surpassed all her 
ltrevnnis efforts by her finished meth- 
ods, restrained force and magnificent 
dramatic qualities. Helena , Richie 
Is reported to be ideally suited to Miss 
Vnglin's originaj methods, and if we 
may Judge by the New York critics. 
Who lavishly praised the artist s work 
at even- point, local playgoers who 
admire 'Margaret Deland'a strongly 
sympathetic works, have no rea- 
son to regret that her most . pop- 
ular book has at last found its way 
to the footlights, which seems to be 
the inevitable destiny of all success- 
ful romances. , ' ,. 

The storv of .the play is too well 
known to need recapitulation. The 
I assurance that .the "dramatist has suc- 
cessfully preserved the old world at-

is Interesting and agreeable. .

If a boy wants to earn his 
own money, The Colonist 
will help him do it. The Col- 
onist needs a few industrious 
boys as carriers. By deliv- 
ering The Colonist in the 
morning outside of school 
hours, a boy can earn his 
own money without associ- 
ating with undesirable com- 
panions. The boy thus en- 
gaged is not the kind to get 
into trouble. This kind of 
boy is bound to win. The 
training that he will get will 
be of inestimable value in 
later life, and through his 
work for The Colonist will 
help lay the foundation of a 
successful career and a use- 
:i 1 citizcr.3hip. Boys that 
would like to carry The Col- 
t will please make ap- 
plication at The Colonist 
Circulation Department.

How all work together to bring about 
the condition of things which prevails 
among western women, the, following 
paragraph shows: 

.The CO-Operation works in the fol- 
lowing manner, broadly speaking, 
though with many minor variations, 
as . may *asily be understood. The 
leading French dressmakers have cer- 
tain prominent clients, of the classes 
already indicated, and thdy have to 
furnish them with u eonxwiitr succt >s- 
sluii of novelties every season and half 
Kfiisoii. Some of these ladles -have 
ItleaS of 1 heir own, or they get an art- 
ist friend to suggest one. They know 
nothing aiiout tnc production of the 

things, bul thej have b fine sense of 
what suits their particular style and 
sets it off in color, cut . and texture. 
They have taste, and their ideas are 
v\orlli loving. Others may ROt lm\ e 
taste, hut th«5 tlfiVe an unerring in- 
stinct for what will attract attention, 
and particularly the attention of the 
rnas( Hiilne .we, The yeas thnp fle-

are suggestive: it Is the business of ! cised by_ Mad^e .Mertou in the Joronto 
the dressmaker, who also has Ideas, p. = Star. She aayfil 

reduce them to practical form. There I "Will the day ever come, I wonder, 
is consultation', comparison modiii.-a- ' u " "hall ail have comrortame 

roomy pockets in our dresses and ftt it 
our watches hung from chains worn 

the loss of life and property, the tag 
competence or the carelessness which 
would allow of a mistake being made 
Is without excuse. Skilled workmen 
Of the best clKSS only should be en- 
gaged, and such labor has a market 
value. , * 

Hut the engineer or th" brakeman 
must himself be a perfect machine 
Every nerve in his body and every 
muscle must be under the control of a 
Arm will and a clear Intellect. He 
must at all times be ready ami re 
sourceful. His own life,' his own 
safety must not be considered in com- 
parison with the lives of the. passen- 
gers in hl.H charKe. or even of the 
freight with which he has been' en- 
trusted. Should n 01 men V, ho are wil- 
ling take sueh positions and WHO 

are fitted to pi rforrri 1 hem be 1 nabied 
to make provision for the future? 

These men are the servants of the 
public and public opinion should sanc- 
tion the payment to then\ of ade~qua£5 

Another case of t he 
slavi sh obedience of 
t-yrn htry- - fashion '"Ts" 

Why should women who are totally 
unlike in almost every respect wear 
elothes of the same pattern, material 
and color'.' Perhaps the answer Is that 
they do. not. There are thousands of 
women who could not be Induced to 
wear blue arid others who abh«>r pink 
or purple. (Tor all that, one need Onlj 
look at the elowds on the streets or 

walk by the shop windows to see thai 

there are fashionable colors and thai 
the looms In main factories have 
chosen to weave the same sort b't 

(TOf Hie past \ enr slotit women have 
eomptessed their waists Onlj to fetjdl r 
the want of syiinmin of their ftjTUrOS 
the more apparent and angular womeii

forms in clinging robes only suitable

rounded curves, if indeed modesty sri-

consnlla tlon. comparison, modifica- 
tion. atKl som. thing praetial Is ham- 
mered out. The dressmakers have 
their own Interests. which are not al- 
ways fdfhti.-al with their clients,' to 
consider.. The modes must not be Im- 
possible for the general public, nnd 
perhaps there may be a quantity of 
material In stock which must he' work- 
ed " off. Then there is the manufac- 
turer to co nsider. H is interest Is to 
sell as much stuff as possible, and It 
will be noticed that to a large extent 
the change of fashion consists in al- 
tering the place where the bulk of the 
material is put. ft— ihust* be got in 
somewhere, hut the position varies. 

It is time that women everywhere 
set -themselves earnestly to consider 
whet her-, their presen t mo de of d r ess 'ii^r |.a — £ 
Is. as beautiful ann as economical -as it 
Ought to he. A very large proportion 
cut the wealth of the world and of its 
labor go to the making of womens' 
clothe" is this as well expanded as It 
ought to be? i . 

features were cast in a grand mold. 

From season to season rich women 
and those who would seem rich spend 
lavishly that for a few short weeks 
they may adorn themselves with the 
newest creations of the modiste, 'or the

United States these boats are largely used to tow the great rafts

Throughout the entire first .three

the strain of having to play straight

athletes from the Island. ' 

Before the match started It Was 
agreed that the amateur teams leave 
the field at three o'clock sharp in

that left them without a chance to

Hamilton, Ontario, Sportsmen 
v Declare That Kerr's Rival 

Always Gets Besfof Time In 


Hamlltonlans" discredit the state- 
ment that Lukeman ran the hundred 
in 9 4-6 at the Central Y.M.C.A. 
garnet). The Hamilton Herald, com- 
menting on the race, says: 

"At the Central Y.M.r.A. meet held 
recently at Scarhoro Heucrh Lukeman 
was credited with 9 4-& seconds fur the 
classic hundred. It Is tern) that Huke- 
man is a wonderful athlete, and as he 
demonstrated, the nest all round man 
in Canada, but how It is that he makes 
9 4-5 in Toronto every lime that he 
performs Is what makes all the cinder 
path artists Sit up and take notice. H 
Lukeman Is mukinft 9 4-5, then Kerr is 
making 9 3-5, Judging froxrj past per- 
formances. At the Eaton meet Luke- 
man, was handed tlie same time, while 
Kerr and 1 'louijhen, y> he nev.-r fall to- 
gether, were, handed 10 T-S, Lukeman 

made a wonderful •howlnav Ukln# 

everything Into consideration, but he 
will have to come up. with the foods 
when .ha runs Kerr on the time that 
is being handed out In the Queen City 
will be labeled as a Joke. Lukeman got 
a grand start and the result was that 
he was better at tha tape by a fifth 
at least The coura* was a bad one. 
being a slow grassy straight-away and 
any person who knows anything about 
sprinting knows that Barney .Wefers 
or Duffy would never make a 9 4-5 
performance on It If they tried a year. 
As the time handed out equals Kerr's 
Canadian record It has created a great 
deal of talk, and the popular opinion 
of those who know something of ath- 
letics Is that Lukeman doesn't lose 
anything on the watches when he ap 
pears at Toronto. If Kerr had been 
here, Lukeman would have been de- 
feated running the same race In 10 1-5 
was the opinion of one of the best 
clnderpath followers there."

For the third time this season. <the 
Spirits, of Seattle, defeated the Victoria 
baseball team at the Royal Athletic, 
parlt yestorday afternoon by the score 
of 6—3. 

Although the score was very close, the 
Kame was played with very little Inter- 
est, the players on both teams being re- 
sponsible for some stupid work. Sui- 
plls was o n . th e . Bl ab for the Victoria 
team, arid pitched a splendid game, strlk- 
/ng out no less than ten of his oppen-ents. 
and allowing eight hits. 
' Owing to the many rounter attractions 
the attendance was not as large as 
usual, but the majority of the regular 
fans were on hand. The Victoria team 
was somewhat changed from the usual 
line up, Moore being on third and Steen- 
soiv.taklns; his place in right field, and 
filling it voi'y acceptably, making a brll- 
USUI entch arid doubling aabtHcr at third 1 "j^ ' 3^"^ 
base by a good throw. . , ^^^J^L 

Trouble In First 

The visitors started the trouble In the 
first innings when the first three men 
up got singles and, aided l>y ttfl BMW and 
a pass ball, . two scored. Tarks Rtruck 
out; Scott, flew out to Steenson In right 
and Knapp was doubled at third. In 
the second innings only one man reached 
first, but he "ot , no 'further than second. 
In the third a two-base hit by Kerry, a 
stolen base and an error akt&w?<t: TTRS'Ttfi

At this stage of the game the «icore 
una even, but in the fourth Surplis took

fnced the pitcher, The first, struck out, 


the next sent a bouncer to Moulton and 
the third went out on. a foul fly to Rob- 
ertson. In the seventh, the fifst throe 
men up took three swings ouch and re- 
turned to the bench. A hit in both the 
»lgTffn n^n ninth inplpgs put nn end to 
the visitors' batting. 

In Victoria's first innings Moore was 
the oTily one to reach first; and hewn* 
caught sleeping away- from his bag. . In 
the second McQuade went, out,, Scott to 
Parks. Whyte got adiit. but was foree.l 
at second by Steenson and Brown TOTlt a 
long fly to-Bottolfs. In the thlt " 
ertson went ,out on a fly to centi

hall was sent to Kerry, and Moulton 
made a bluff at going back. In the 
meantime Moore was hunting It' for 
second: Kerry ran half way down' to 
second endeavoring to catch Moore, but 
failed by a nice slide on the part . Of 
Moore, and Moulton scared. Moore stole 
third nnd came home when Scott missed 
MeQuado's grounder. ■ ' 

This evened the score and also ended 
It. W'hyte going out, ,Iean to Parks. Al- 
though Victoria got . merl on the bases In 
the fifth, sixth and eighth, they were ton- 
able to change the result.

New York Sun: The Jeffries-John- 
son fight pictures, now On exhibition 
at several lpcal theatres, display the 
Interesting fact that as soon as Ref- 
eree Rlckard deeidod in favor of John- 
son. Jeffries got up unassisted, and 
walked alone to his Corner. The boiler- 
maker at no time seemed to be border- 
ing upon a state of unconsciousness, 
ami In the opinion of veteran sporting 
men, - who have seen the films, he was 
not knocked out according to the stri-t 
meaning of the term, and the enforce- 
ment of the rules. Jpffriest wasn' 
counted out, and from the way lie pro- 
ceeded to his cornvrZ he could have 
continued the fight If so ordered by 
tho referee, after the ring hard been 
cleared. The Impression prevails among 
those who have watched the pictures 
of the fight carefully, that Jeffries 
knew when he had had enough. 

The following is from a Hamilton 
exchange: Bobby Kerr will likely com- 
pete in tho sprints in connection with 
ilic Labor pay sports at Winnipeg. He 
has 'never competed in the . west, al- 
though he has had several Invitations. 
Whetl the Canadian, champio n s hips 
were held there last year, Kerr. was in 
England, and there was general. disap- 
pointment among the athletic enthu- 
siasts "C Manitoba, at his' being" nnrrbhr 
to attend. The Labor people wrc 
anxious, to have him compete ' there 
last year, but he could hot spare the 
time to make the trip, his holidays 
having been all taken up by the trip 
to England. He will not compote at 
the Central Y.M.t'.A. meet at Toronto 
and Charles Morgan will bin the only 
Hamilton sprinter there. 

Manager Murphy Is determined to 
wipe out the defeat administered to tho 
Toronto team In Cornwall n few weeks 
ago.. The. team are, in much better 
shape than when they , played in 
the factory' town. Carter arid Fitz- 
gerald are rounding into shape.

IcAKTHUR, Agent 

Kull details of the fighting at Col- 
owan. near Macao, were received by 
the Empress. ./of.. India, which arrived 
yesterday. The Chinese admiral. Li 
Chun, placed his fleet of nine gun- 
boats under the Portuguese— to assist 
the Vasco de Cama, Patria, Rema 
Dona Amelia and Macao, in the le'in- 

bardment_and. .hloekarlfl_at tha.. Island, 
where the idrates were besieged be- 
hind the high mud walls of the vil- 
lage. The pirates, after a week's bom- 
bardment during which a number _of_ 
lights between landing parties and the 
piratas took place, broke the blockade 
during a heavy storm at night, the 
majority making their escape. When 
the Portuguese and Chinese landing 
force rushed the walls , of Colowan 
they found it practically deserted. 
There was considerable loss of life 
during the fighting, and 4<>t) pirates 
were taken. The bombardment, al- 
though heavy — the 1 gunboat Macao 
alone firing 400 shots from her 4-inch 
guns, wrecking the- pirate village and 
setting fire to a portion of It— did not 
kill many of the pirates. They took 
refuge in caves on the hillsides, from 
where a number were smoked out by- 
fires lighted at the cavemouths after 
the flight of the main body. 

The origin of the trouolc was whole- 
sale kidnapping of Chinese boys from 
schools in Canton. The parents, most- 
ly wealthy merchants, received letters, 
emblazoned with .big jred • blotches of 

Id J over drawings of a pre-historie 

tiger, with an eagle and. dragon nt 
either side, demanding that-*35,0v0 be 
paid ransom. Two ~w ( eeks were given 
to pay under pain of torturing and 
decapitating the captives. The par- 
ents' offered $15,000 which the pirates 
refused. Three sons of a wealthy

gunboat, Macao was then sent with 
inforcements on July 11th, and r 
day a force of 105 Infantrymen, a com-, 
paiiy ofT" artillery with two field guns 
was landed. 

Golowan is but four miles from the 
mouth of the harbor at Macao and 
much excitement prevailed there. As 
soon as the larger landing force" land- 
ed the villagers In the vicinity Joined 
the -pirates, a nd when the Islanders* 
opened , fire— they were armed with 
Mausers'"-' and. smokeless powder — 
from behind the mud walls, this was 
the signal for general cannonading 
by the naval and military forces. 

The attitude «X_ the Chinese fleet 
which quickly assembled caused some 
alarm, but this subsided when Admiral 
Ll^hun-sent a wireless message from 
the Kong Chu offering to turn ovei 
his fleet- to aslst in the-ftgtit ... 
the pirates. He had nine vessels, 
four of them comparatively large gun- 
boats, and soon brought up the whole 
West river flotilla.. - armed with Nor- 
derlfelts and other quick-firers. The 
"larger Portuguese vessels dropped 
shells Into the pirate stronghold from 
some distance, but the . Macao was 
able with her shallow draft to ap- 
proach close, and fired 400 rounds t,be 
first day". The heaviest loss of life 
was among the villagers, 
retiring Into caves. The 
hei n a pii ate stronghold 
years, the villagers living 
brought there. 

After the first day's fighting in 
which two villages were reduced al- 
most to ashes, the pirates were called 
upon to surrender. They refused^ The 
bombardment continued on July 1 4 tli, 
after an interval given for burial of 
the dead — a . boat laBferT with' oil for 
this purpose being allowed to pasfl 
the blockade, whlb' another carrying 
arina^-upd:.. explosives was sunk and 
the majority of those on board dmw ti- 
ed'. The landing force Invested the 
stronghold, and some of the villagers 
begaii to hoist white flags. Seven" of 
the kidnapped children were recovered 
among the prisoners taken this day, 
nearly nil of them wounded, and some 
mutilated by the pirates.. Numbers 
of JunRs were intercepted trying to 
pass through the blockade. The 
Chinese ■ fteti.lhr-landed 1,200 men to 
assist the Portuguese, and the com- 
bined force assaulted -the pirates on 

July lath. There was considerable 
I loss hi both sides. Military hospitals 

'were established, friend and foe being 
treated by the same doctors. The 
combined assault provoked many sur- 
renders, parties hOiMtltlg white flags 
and coming In. The greater number 
at tin pirates, how . v. r. ret ired in to 
the eaves. The work of driving them 
out was tedious, th- dlslll't being 

mottntainous and covering five miles; 
The investment was completed by 
July 22nd, when n small force was 
captured after being smoked out with 
burning suipbnr placed at pa - emouths. 

Il w as then found that tin majorl I J 
of the pirate force, some 2,500 of 
Cent. bad uianage,| to escape by 
junks which broke thwugh the DJQ< k-

on It which resulted suceessfully. a 
big party of emaciated men, women 
and children who were imprisoned,

Commander Woo, disguised as a

pirate stronghold to secure informa- 




The pirate chief. Leiing Ye Wall, 
who escaped. Is a well known agitator 
and leader of revolutionists, and a re- 
ward of $12,000 was on his head. The 
pirate caves were stored with rice 
enough to last for months and much 
axains t J : plunder, was found In them. The 
pirates have operated for thirty years, 
and many shocking incidents of their 
work are reported. one day Leung's 
men captufed two men and demanded 
ransom for them. The relatives of 
one paid the money, but those of the 
I other did.. not answer the letter. Xext 
day the poor man's head, neatly wrap- 
ped In a parcel, was delivered to his 
neglectful relatives. In another case 
they .actually went the length of re- 
turning the body of one of their vic- 
tims in a brand new coffin.

i Morning Post of Hongkong "at the

of the Chinese crew did. The stowa- 
ways said the Chinese bo'sutt had 
furnished them with the tallymen's

told the customs officers they were 
members of the crew. This was 
speedily disposed of for the crew were 
mustered und checked ami there were 
two over. The stowaivaja also over- 
looked the fact that the photograph

Erroneously Thinks by Scouring Her 
Scalp That She Cures Dandruff 

Cleanly woman- has ap erroneous 
idea that by scouring the scalp, which 
removes the- dandruff, scales,' she is 
curing the dandruff. She may wash 
her scalp every day, and yet have 
dandruff her life long, accompanied 
by tailing hair, too. The only way In 
the world to cure dandruff is to kill 
the dandruff germ, and there is no 
hair preparation that will do that but 
Newbro's Herplcide. Jlerplcide by 
killing the dandruff germ, leaves the 
hair free to grow as healthy Nature 
intended. Destroy the causes you re-

Surtees Hope, a prominent shipping; 
man of Seattle loaded the vessel for 
her first voyage "with a general cargo. 
Cap*. Pybus, now master of the Km- 
press of Japan, was the first captain 
of the Cass. The first crew was com- 
posed of Chinese and one of the old- 
tlme "bucko" mates, whose fame for 
brutality -has gone down In history, 
hart thr handling of the men. 

Passing through the Sues canal twr 
thls drat voyage to China the mate 
manhandled one of the crew and in 
abusing the man pulled out his pig- 
tall. The Chinese, who regard the loss 
of the pigtail as everlasting disgrace, 
immediately rose In mutiny to avenge 
their countryman. 

Docks Strewn With Dead 

In the fight which followed in a 
twinkling there was loss of life, and 
the decks of the newly launched Cass 
ran red with blood. The officers were 
driven for shelter to the bridge 
and there they were held, in a 
state of siege until their signals of 
distress were observed from the shore 
and help was sent to them. Capt. Py- 
bus and his officers were taken ashore 
but it was many days before the crew 
was placated and the Cass resumed 
her trip to the East. 

Losing Investment for Owners 

On the run out of Araoy the Cass 
did not pay dividends to her owners. 
She was tied up_ at Shanghai and a 
firm composed of French adventurers 
Opened negotiations for the vessel. The 
government officials held oufc^HHH 
high -price and the negotiations drag- 
gedr^The would-be purchasers figured 
that possession, besides being nine 
polata of the law. would furnish a 'bet- 
ter baste from which to conduct ne- 
gotiations and they accordingly set 
about capturing the steamship. 

An English captain and engineer 
were sent aboard the vessel; 'ostensibly, 
to survey, her and appraise her value. 

: At nightfall bargeloads of coal drew 
quickly . alongside and the- fuel ' was 
speedily. ..taken aboard. Before morn- 

I ing the steamship was missing from 
her anchorage In Shanghai harbor and 

I well out at sea. -.- 

Captured by Warship 

Chinese warships were sent out In 
pursuit. The steamship was overtaken 
at Hongkong and forced .to return to 
Shanghai.' For some years afterward 
the vessel remained in the Oriental 
trada^ under various 'managements. 
Once ' she was boarded by Chinese 
pirates and for a , second" time hfer 
decks-wore soiled with human blood.

barbarians from a high mountain com-

efforts were unsuccessful, so that It 
was necessary- to re-enforce them with 
the reserves, together with heavy guns.

have adopted a very sagacious de- I

LONDON, Aug. 6.— The production of 
a nev? coinage Is always a ra<her'.,.»low 
process, but on the present occasion it 
may be expedited to some extent. 

Tn ilie case of the late king, who 
came to the throne i 11 ' Ja nua'r y, ' l !» 0i, the 
order in council and proclamation deter- 
mining p»W flptrlgTin ffl* solg and bronze 
coin's was issued -on lJecember 10 in the 
same year, and canic into force on Jan- 
uary I, 1902, while the order relnting 
to silver coins was not approved until 
Jauuary IX . ' : 

On that occasion there were several 
changes In the reverses, notably the 
half-crown and florin, with the object 
oV making; the two coins as- dissimilar 
us possible. The only , change, it .1* 
understood', which will lie made 'th the 
new "coins will be the royal effljjy, for 
Which Bertram MacKlnnal, it. A., the 
Australian sculptor, is now engaged In 
making designs. 

The portrait of King ICdward which' 
appears on the present cuinage is the' 
work of Mr. De Haulles, 'the then en- 
graver to. the mint, the head in profile 
being truncated in a similar manner to 
the effigy on the first coinage of Queen 
ViCtorf* and ,oii tbe coinages of most 
of his lite majesty's predecessors since 
the r.Mgn' of Charles 11. PerhapB the 
best that can be said for the design is 
that it Is commonplace and Inoffensive, 
There is a confident, expectation that 
Mr. MacKlnnal. ' wilj produce something 
worthy, not ohl'y of his reputation as a 
sculptor, but also of a coinage which, 
as far at least as. Its gold fs concerned, 
enjoys the largest circulation in the 

Many suggestions are being made as 
to alterations which might properly be 
made In the new coinage. Tt is con- 
tended, for instane'e, that the Inscrip- 
tion should be In Knglish Instead of 
Latin. There is a good deal to be said 
for the change from "Georglus V. Del

Regrets have been expressed at the

which accompanied the figure of Britan-

age: That took place in 1S95. and there 
was a mild agitation against their re-

An Absolute Necessity 
r-W Fbr Good Health 

z^s; You' mi ght~£Hr\vcU expect to find a man or woman, 
: hrallhy jvith.xoustipattd. bowels as to find a city 
healthy -when its sewers are blocked with refuse. 

' Nature demands that the indigestible food and 
waste matter which'coll'ects in the, lower bowels shall 
• be got rid of at least 'nice iu twenty-four hours. If , 
this is not done it decomposes, filling the bowels with 
ppison, which is takeu up into the blood and carried 
all through the body. 
'>: Naturally^ this poisori affects the work of every, 
organ. The liver is deranged, digestion is upset, and 
biliousness, headaches, lassiiuie and dizzy spells follow. 

Literally millions of p:opie sufferthese results ' 
of constipation without realizing the cause, or doing 
anything to remove it. Yet it can be removed, easil v 
on'd with certainty, by u.aug Dr. Morse's Indian 
Root Pills. 

Tak^ _ for^ exampte, Ihe^ case of Mr. George 
Andrews, Halifax, N.S., as he himself describes it: 

. "For many vears I have been troubled with chronic 
constipation. This ailment never comes single handed, 
and I have been a victim to the many iUnesses that con- 
stipation brings in its train. Medicine after medicine I , 
have takep in order to find rtlief, but one and all left me 
in IHe same hopeless condition. At last I read about 
' these Indian Root Fi,lK\ Ti nt was indeed a lucky day 
" for me, for 1 was so impressed by the statements contained 
therein that I determined to give them a fair trial. They 
have regulated mv stomach and bowels. I am. cured of 
constipation and claim they hive no equal as a medicine." 

Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills were first taken 
to cure constipation nearly a hundred years ago, and 
during the last half century they have been very 
extensively and very . successfully used throughout 
the world. They. are entirely vegetable in composition 
and do not sicken, weaken or gripe like mineral purgatives.

LONDON, Aug, 6. - A submarine tele-

opposing an increase of wages for cer-

in Victoria, and five now troops are in procc-- 
of organization. What does it mean? It 
means more than a fad. more than a play-plan 

for growing lads ; it means, perhaps, the future 
of the British Empire- 
Kipling, when he wrote hi- "Recessional, 1

had forgotten. Her gXfiatfiSj enemy was her

or frowned into silence, Then, little by little, 
the truth began to seep into the nation's under- 
standing. She needed trained men tG do 011 
land what she trusted her navy to do Qfl the 
sea. Against the nations requiring of their citi- 
zens compulsory service the force? of Creat 
Britain wore as nought. Yet COftip'utSory ser- 
vice was out of the reckoning for Creat Britain. 
What to do? Then came General R. S. 'S. 
Baden-Powell with a suggestion, a solution— 
and the Boy Scouts movettieii1 was put for- 

It was two years ago that Baden-Powell, 
the Hero q£ r Mafeking, introduced his idea. 
Since, no prairie fire ever spread with .more 
enthusiastic rapidity. The idea was developed, 
cultivated, eliminations and aTltHtjcrns were 
made. Now the movement is a fascinating 
game, which teaches the youngsters self-re- 
liance, energy and thrift. Bui more than that, 
it ingrains, at a time when the mind IS most 
receptive, a thorough kn.pwle.dge of field tac- 
tics. The immediate result w ill he thai at least 

five hundred thousand Britishers wfoo«w ill be 
men tomorrow, have the spirit of modern war- 
fare planted in their hearts and a very valu- 
able idea of how 10 'defend the nation'- botne'S 
cultivated in their minds - 

Yet, this is not the underlying principle of 
the Boy Scout movement at all. General 
Baden-Powell's ambition was not to turn out 
British volunteers, but to "give our young men 
a chance, before they have grown into the 
'waster' stage." The motto of the organisation 
is. "Be Prepared." This, the foundcr_jexplains,

It was about eight months "ago that the 
Mook^root in -Vichirin T-fl<» Rjry AV 

Barton, curate of Christ Qiureb^ Cathedral, 
realizing the great gOod that was being done 
elsewhere/ decided to make an attempt to or- 
ganize the boys of this city. Rev. Mr. Barton 
first mentioned the matter in church, and later 
called a meeting in the schoolroom. Out of 
this preliminary step grew four troops throe of 
them formed among the boys of Christ Church 
and one among the boys of the Reformer) Epis- 
copal Church. Since that time the movement 
lias, spread Rere with the same popularity 
evinced elsewhere. Troops have been formed 
in Victoria West, at the First Congregational 
Church, and five more troops are being started, 
four of them in the city and one at Cloverdale. 

The class of Boys who offered themselves 
as material was higfe Among the first to join 
were three lads who had served under Baden- 
Powell in En glan d, and the) were able to give 
the new recruits;, some valuable pointers, The 
age limit fixed is being 10 and 18 years, imT 
elusive, and up on joi ning the lads are care- 
fully instructed in the rules and regulation- of 
the^organizat i> in. 

The Boy Scouts unit of organizatiQii_is_ihc

Commander. Several patrols-comprise a troop, 
Jed by an officer called a scout -master. The

To win the next sVep. that of a first-class 
scout, the lad must be^blc to swim fifty yards,

When the movement was well -launched in 
Victoria, the Rev. 'Mr. Barton found that he 
had disintegrated a lar ge portion for niastica- 
' tion. for lie was the natural and efficient head 
— trf the organization here. 1^ devotrd his time 
and his energies to the work in a ■manner' that 
must merit tUc.~admiralion of al l citizens and 
graduallv, with; the assistance of other workers, 
moved fry the same spirit thai, moved the 
clergyman leader, the local force of scouts was 
whipped into form. 

Early last Decebmer the question pi taking 
up this new body of enthusiastic poys was put 
before Col. J. A. Hall, and he gave it instant 
Slipport. -Un Dccemhtcr tS, as a result of Col. 
Mall's decision, ihe first brigade parade w.i- 
held at the drill hall. The boys were without 
uniform, but t h e y h ad the hearts of scout-, and 
what they lacked in knowledge of drill they 

made r rp"i 1 1 enthusiasm. The parade was a suc- 
cess as a be gimiTng'. 

In May the ti nifcYrfml— paid "foFbyTlTe boys" 
themselves- — arrived, and then, tt may be said, 
tin movement was clinched no far as the lads 
-e-oHt-^e-metb — H-a-r d drilli n g — and -s-t -ead y 
work followed. The scout-masters gave their 

time arid their ability, learning.. Ithctr duties 
along with the boys. Gradually, but with the 
rapidity that characterizes boys' drill, the work- 
was picked up. the old clumsiness was lo^t and 

the troops became efficient, "snappy." Then 
calne the 'field days. The first was held in 
April in Victoria West. It, was a wet, nasty 
day, but the boys were as full of enthusiasm as 
young hounds. The troops were divided, one 
side investing a given territory while the other 
side tried to get through w ith despatches, The 
work was excellent, and many of the lads 
evinced ingenuity and scouting ability of a 
high .order. Honors were evenly divided at the 
close of the day. however, tl/e runners break- 
ing thrpugh the lines in one instance, while 
they were captured in another. 

F.arly iii June the second field day was held 
in the vicinity of the Pumping Station. Tlte 
idea was that the Pumping Station was being 
attacked with the object of cutting off the 
city's water supply, Some of the boys had to 
get through to take the station, which w is 
s"i<iuil\ defended. Scouts were thrown QUI and 
skirmishes followed. Then came the main at 
tack. 'But, alas for the defenders 1 They did

The daily work at.canfp was of-the kind that is 
calculated to do the lads Inost good. All -the 
time possible was spent out of floors, and there 

-was not too much drill to make it tiresome. 
The mornings and evenings were spent in 
bathing at the Gorge and Maple Bay, and 
scouting and instruction of a general character 
were carried out/during the day hours. 

The scouts had an adventure during that 
camp, too. A lot of the fresh young hooligans 
who. unfortunately because of the system of 
civilization cannot be cooped up in one large 
walled enclosure and left to their own devices 
forcvermorc, decided to put the scouts' camp 
out of business. They threw s bones from a 
safe distance during the afternoon and then hit 
upon a 'night attack. The canip^vvas dark and 
.silent, when .suddenly the night air was pierced 
by the shrill shriek of a sentry's whistle. In- 
stantly the/camp was in action. Tents belched 
forth und/ssed scouts, trembling with excite- 
ment and eagerness. Officers hastily formed 
their men into ordered bodies ami a search of 
the camp was begun. \o trace of the enemy 
was found, however, and after half an hour the 
scout- were: ordered back to bed, all save one 
patrol, which was sent out to scour the neigh-

Arctic J/ egetables—Good 

A time when we shall import our fresh ve- 
getables and early fruits from the North, in- 
stead of the South, IS a dream which at present 


the cited of the aurora borealis Qn cal/^Tl^eH{a- 
not been reduced to a formula; But it T^_pi'tft 
generally conceded by those who hav-V^a-ten 
arctic-grown vegetables that nothing more de- 
licious is to be found in the whole world. 
Whether this is due to natural or artificial elec- 
tricity — both have been used up there in hot 
ticulturc — or merely to the peculiar quality of 
soil and atmosphere, is still a matter of dispute* 
Some iu\ estimators hav e definitely rejected 
the hypothesis that vegetation is affected by 
atmospheric electricity. On the other hand, 
professor kemstroem, of the CmVersity of 

Helsingfors. Finland, vigorously . sustains this 
theory and adduces experimental evidence in 
its support. Lcmstroem. according to a writer 
in Cosmos, asserts that when plants cultivated 
in the polar regions escape destruction by noC-" 
turnal frosts, they grow far more rapidly and 
luxuriantly than plants growjng in milder- cli- 
mates. Rve. barley and oats, especially, yield 
vers large GropS, in spite of primitive methods 
of cultivation with wooden plows arid harrovys. 

The grow th of plants depend^ not only on 
the fertility of the soil, but also on the supply of 
heat, light and moisture.' In the polar regions 
the supply of heat is very small. The rapid 
growth of plants in these region- has hitherto 
been attributed to the continuous daylight of 
two or three months in summer, but this ex- 
planation must be abandoned, since it has been 
proven that, even in those months, le-s beat 
and light are received from the -un m the polar 
regions than at the latitude nf sK^y degrees'. 

Lcmstroem finds several reasons for believ - 
ing that the cause of rapid growth in the Arc- 
iic is to be found in the electrical currents 
which flow between tn*e earth and the atmo- 
sphere, ami produce the- phenomena of the au- 
rora borcalis. The pointed leaves of conifer- 
and the barbs of ear.- of grain facilitate the 
transmission, of these currents throu|h thosi 
plants, and this function supplies a reason for 
the existence of thifse peculiarities. ' 

Moreover, from a~study of the concentric 

annual layers of growth of conifers growing in 
various latitudes, between the sixtieth ami six- 
t\ seventh parallels. I ,enMl roem finds that ,the 
thickness of the annual layer varies according 
to a definite law. -bowing maxima and mini- 
ma which -Indicate a period of ten or eleven 
rears, coinciding with the period of sumspoti 
and aurora*. . ' . • . 

The deferences, furthermore, are greater in 
the great firs' within the arctic circle, at sixty- 
seven degrees north latitude, than in trees 
growing farther south. This appears to indi- 
cate than* the atmospheric electricity of the po 
far region's exerts a beneficial effeel upon vege 
tation. 1~2T' - -

the effect of electricity, produced bv a Holt/ 
machine, upon barley, wheal and rye, groj

e.great men 01 tormer times were prone 
to expreVs their view - and theories from time 
ToTi>ue_yui matters that might develop in future 
years. One of the most popular Of these was 
the art of flying, and of all the opinions lX 

pressed long ago none i< more interesting than 
that of Mr. Samuel Johnson, U..D., written 
more than a centurv ago. This is what he 
wrote : 

Among the artists that had been allured into 

Happy Valley, to labor for tin accommodation 
and pleasure of its inhabitants. v\as a man em- 
inent for his knowledge of the mechanic pow- 
ers,- Who had contrived many engines both of 
use and recreation. By a .whe el which the 
stream turned he forced the water into a tower, . 
whence it was distributed to all the apartment's 
of the palace. He erected a pavilion in the 
garden, around which he kept the air always

appropriated to the ladies, was ventilated by 
fans, to w hich the rivulet that rati .through it 
gave a constant motion: the instruments of 
soft music were placed at proper distances, of 
which some played by the impulse of the wind 
ami some by the power of the stream.. 

This artist was Sometimes visited bv Ka-- 
selas. who was pleased with- every kind of 
knowledge, imagining that the tinTe would 
come w hen all his acquisitions ghotyla be of u-e

the master busy in building a sailing chariot : he 
saw that the design wa- practicable upon a 
level surface, and With expressions ■<•♦+' great 
esteem solicited itsi completion. The work- 
man- was ple ased to find himsel f so much re- 
garded by the prince, and resolved to gain yet 
higher honors. "Sir." said he. "vim have seen 
but a small part of what the mechanic sciences 
can perform.' I h'ave been long of opinion that. 

instead of the t ardy conv ev ance of ships and 
chariots, man might use tin- swifter migration 
of wings; that the fields of air are open to 
knowledge, ami that only ignorance and idle- 
ness need crawl upon the ground." 

This hint rekindled the prince's desire of 
passing the mountains; having seen what the 
mechanist had already performed, he was will- 
ing to fancy that he could do more ; vet re- 
solved to inquire further, before he suffered 
hope to afflict him by disappointment, jl a/n 
afraid;" paid he to the artist, "thai your imag- 
ination prevails over vow skill, and thai yoii 
now tell me rather what you wish than what 
you know. Every animal has his element as- 
signed him: the birds have the air. and -man 
and beasts the earth." 

"So." replied the mechanist, "fishes ha\r. 
the water, in which vet beasts can -uim b\ 11,1

"But the e.\crrisc of Swimming." said the 
prince, "is very laborious; the strongest limbs 
are SOOU wearied/; I am afraid the act of flying 
will be yet morel .violen t; a nd wings will be of 
no great use unkss we can fly further than, we 
can swim." ' ' . . 

"The labor of rising from the gtound," said 
the artist, "will be great, as we see it in the

The Ethics Embodied in Early Chinese Liter- 

: ature ' — ■•- — - - 

before the time of Confucius, there nour- 
ished a comparatively exterisiye literature in 
China; in -fact, all the leading events in that 
qountry's history Were chronicled from the 

"twenty-third century before Christ to 721. 
These records were carefully examined by the 
great Asiatic scholar and edited by him., and 
they are valuable to the literature of the world 
in the evidence they furnish of the character- 

—- istks of a people s o far remote from 11s in 
point 61 time. Besides recounting past events 
that have had no small share in shaping the 
destinies of t lie JKprld today, they show us, 
that ethically and scientifically, the Chinese 
of more than two thousand year-, ago showed 
great advancement. Much of our modern 
philosophy can trace a far away paral lel to. the 
Utterances and writings of the sovereigns and 
sages who lived in that dim past Who know s 
from what ancient source -they derived the 
inspiration for their advice and teaching, or 
whether it came to them simply frorrra con- 
templation of nature in her man) phases? We 
can discover nothing m philosophy today that 
was not an old truth in the shadowy begin- 
nings of history. W e may, individually, from 
time to time. Decame imbued with. .a sud den

not do, and then they arc able to act with 
vigor in which they ought.

-The Soul of a Serf:" J. li. FJlis. 

Lee, Publishers, Toronto. 
To all Anglo-Saxons the world over this 
book must prove of interest,, wherever read. 
Not only does the author relate a tab" worth 
while, hut he gives us an insight into the early 
days of our race, days when our ancestors, the 
Angles, Saxons and Jutes, inhabited Sleswick. 
h'riesland and Jutland, living wild, free lives in 
.111 untamed country; knowing little ol social 
and moral laws as we uphold them today, and 
vet laving the foundation, in their primitive 
fashion, fpr.those institutions, which, flourish- 
ing in our own times, mean the splendid sys- 
tem of modern government, a democracy stand- 
ing for enlightenment, progress and freedom. 

From the very interesting appendix at the 
end of the book w-e condense the following de- 
scription of the early English people. ., 

Th ese three above-named L>w German 
tribes, the Angles. SaxOOS and J nil's, all spoke 

the same language and lived, socially, morally 

and religiously , the same kind of lite. In the 
centre of each village or "Tuiiship," in a house 
distinguished from those of its neighbors bv 
"its large size and the extent of the laud Sur 
rounding it. lived the aehlorman, &t chief, lb- 
rose to his position usually through having dis 
played courage in battle or skill m leadership", 
for to be accounted a man of valor was each 
citizen's aim-. All about the house of the ealdor- 
man were the farms and the crofts of the Irce- 
mcii, and the village was surrounded ' ,v ;i 
which was a wall or trench, hence the words, 
tun. tunship. town and township. 

Besid es the cahiormcn ami freemen there 
were the locts and the slaves* The difference 
between these two last is not ca-ilv defined 
Shoo They were both the property of thru- masters, 

hut "while in the case of the slave he might be 

killed by his master without am questions be 
ing asked, it a freeman killed his Let he un- 
liable tn the payment of a fine. . LoetS were 
j 'Men set free, slaves were seldom or rievci 
given their freedom. 

The religion pf these tribes was the Scan 
dinavian mythology: 1 In the beginning there 
was a nothingness. Gehliuhgagap, by name; it 
was a space' between other spaces, a void 
among voids. • Out of it grew the root of a 
great "ash. This tree had two other roots ; one 
in Xiflhcim — a nothingness pf frame, which the 
poiSOnOUS snake gnaws dav and night -'and 
another in Asgard or heaven, where the gods 
dwell. It was thisir^evUiat held tip the-earth 

and it is this tree, or the belief 111 it. that was

Indian Associations 

Richard Thackeray , father of the novelist, 
was appointed collector Oi the extensive dis- 
trict lying beyond Calcutta, an appointmen t, 
considered one of the prizes of the licngal 
Civil Service. The. collector lived, at Alipurs. 
which became his home. It was the country 
lodge of Sir Philip Francis, the villa inter 
paludcs, where he held his weekly sympo- 
"stinTTS^ The whole internal administration of 
a district of some two .thousand square miles, 
with a population now . exceeding one and a 
half millions, centred in him. Besid es this, there 
was a wide nnsurveyed region of forests and 
swamps., through which the bengal, rivers 
merge info- th e sea at one end ■■ o f— the district, 
and the no-man's-land of creeks and jungle s , 
inhabited only by tigers, .deer, and crocodiles, 
and the few remnants of the old rivet pirates, 
at the other. Richard Thackeray died on Sept. 
13, 1815, aged only 32 years and 10 months, 
leaving aTT only 'son. the future nov elist, just 
four months' old. The ydung mother, her sell 
.Only 23, found a home with her relatives in 
India, and to the grief of widowhood had to 
add the separation from her only child. 

I lis first recollection of William Make- 

have so far to gei — for in my pocket, when I 
am travelling, o* by my bedside when at home, 
Thackeray is always there. I think he must, 
have realized that wislfof the poet's : 

"Like God, I would pervade humanity, 
From the shivering seals' low moans 
Up through the ranks and tiers of life, 
To kings upon their thrones." 

W as it Thackeray's genius that gave him 
such an inner knowledge of mankind You 
all know the old story of a bishop in the rail- 
way carriage with two navvies, who were using 
language not stricl 1 v 'evangelical,. _" M V good 
man." he said, ■•where did you learn such a Jan 
guage?" "earn it, governor?" said he. "You 
can't learn il,--it's a gift." (Laughter.)

I am sorrv to confess that in my life 1 have 
been guiltv of many acts of selfishness, oj 
meanness, and. if you like, of snobbishness, 
and Thackerav has analysed them all and cas- 
tigated me accordingly. You. 1 am sure, have 
done many deeds of self-sacrifice and 'kindness, 
and for all of these Thackeray has loved and 
applauded you. 

Newman in beautiful language described 
what a gentleman should be, and Thackeray 
v ied with him in his definition of what it is to 
be a gentleman. It is to have lofty aims, to 
lead a pure life, to keep your honor virgin, to 
have the esteem of your fellow-citizens, and 
the love of your fireside; to bear good fortune 
meekly, to' suffer evil with constancy, and 
through evil and good -to maintain truth al-

Mr. II. C. Liron. opening a subsequent dis- 
cussio**; said it was not, perhaps, so incongru- 
ous as it might appear that he, a magistrate, 
should speak of Thackeray, because at one time 
Thackerav seriously attempted to be a police 
magistrate himself— ( laughter )— for he read 
for the Bar. Fortunately, perhaps, for hu- 
niauitv. he abandoned those studies later in 
life in order to pursue, literature. Thackeray's 
books were about people. They were living

The begin ning of party governraept1trE«g- 
land was under conditions which, in these 
days, would not be tdleratedy especially in tUe 
matter of bribery. ' This wa's open, notorious 
and flagrant. atehcmgfe4hc=fflffl^ 
tain cases were absurdly small. It seems 
rather absurd to read that a noble lord valued 
hi* vote at £io 2S. ; It also seems astonishing 
to find that regular accounts' of such expendi- 
tures were kept, and that m^aet,-aH *»f,fice was 
opened where business of this kind \va« trans- 
acted, hi the days of the Sudors and the Stu- 
arts, if a member of'Parliament was not amen- 
able to the wishes of the powers that were, it 
was an easy matter to lock him Up in the 
Tower unti'l he saw the error of his *way§ ) or 
the measure to which lie took exception had 
been passed; but trie Revolution abolished this 
practise, and under the leadership of W barton, 
who was probably selected for i lie cabinet lot- 
no other reason than that he absolutely lacked 
anything that-resembled a conscience, bribery 
of members became SO common as to be 
looked upon as a matter of course. 

■•;We— saw in the last preceding article that 
the Commons endeavored to exclude from 
that body all office-holders under the. Crown, 

and that the Lords objected to it, except with 
the proviso that, while an acceptance of office 
vacated a seat, the office-holder might be re- 
elected. The King veto ed ..this ; but — Ltoth 
Houses T determined [ that it should become the 

afterwards William the Conqueror, and now 
it is Princess Sophia, in whoiw the inheritance 
-mas.. vested hy thfLjfi^kiBgJUlsL. Pari iamen t 
Formerly the descent w*s absolute, and the 
crown went to the next heir Without any 
restriction ; but now, upon-- the new settlement, 
the i nheritance is conditional ;, being 'limited 
" to such Heirs' "only "' of ' the ^ffy~oTTr^e Princess 
Sophia as art Protestant members of the 
Church of England, and are not married to 
Catholics." / 

No further limitations have ever been 
made upon the succession! George V. derives 
his title solely . from the Act of Settlement, and 
his title is not absolute, but conditional, for he 
would forfeit it if he should profess the Roman 
Catholic faith, or if, in the event of the death 
of the Queen he should marry a Roman Catho- 
lic. It is no longer necessary for a new kin 
to gg through any form or pretext of election, 
as we have seen was the case even in the time 
of W illiam the Conqueror, The heir succeeds 
instantly upon the death— uf his predecessor, 
the thrpne is hot for the smallest ,fnt<*Siori of

Personally, William III. was no t a l&e— r

there is a land of rest beyond the grave, where

is such. a thing as being superior to business 
success or failure; there is such a thing as a 
pleasure far exceeding mere physical enjov- 
inent. This height is reached, this pleasure is 
attained by those who. to use David's simile,

a race,, which ante-dated what we know of the 
origin of Egyptian history by fully four thou- 
sand years. If the Egyptians are not descend- 
ants of these,.. they have no representatives as 
far as can be traced. Some writers have 
thought that they had discovered proof that 
the early home of the Egyptians was in the far 
North at an earlier geological- period. It is 
even suggested that they migrated southward 
to escape the effects of the Ice Age. and one 
writer 'goes so far as to claim that the word 
which is translated East in Egyptian records 
really means North. The Great Pyramid is 
relied upon to furnish evidence of this northern 
origin, and the, claim is made that it was built 
"originally in commemoration of Mount Meru, 
a mythical elevation at the North I'ole, where 
in the Golden Age of the poets and the Tertiary 
Age of the geologists, mankind 'are SUppOS'ed to 
ha\e dwelt. Whether this is all fancy, or 
there may be under it a substratum of fact, it is 
impossible *to r sa y/ but" t he Egyptians always 
have been and nmv are one of the insoluble 
puz/les of historians. They seem to have kept 
apart from other races. Wave after wave of 
■conquest has swept over the land. Indeed, for 
four thousand years strangers have ruled the 
country; but the Egyptian Of today remains 
ihe same as the" Egyptian > whom Abraham 
found dwelling' there,, when in the twilight of 
history hejnade his journey to-th e Nile valley 
because of a famine' iii the land where he had 
been living. - 

The people of Syria represent a diversity of 
origins. Some of them arc descended from the 
ancient liini tc s. — Som e of t h e m ar c Turks, 
some Arabs, some Druses, some "Armenians, 
some Jews, and so on. making altogether the 
most extraordinary racial medleyjmjsartlv In 
t he A r menians we have wti i oilyT if^^ 

Germanic stock represented ; in the Arabs what 
is called the Semitic; in the Turk the Turani- 
ans. The lews are assigned to the samerorigin- 
as the Arabs. ./But this may or may not be the 
case. . The Druses are in many respects an ex- 
traordinary people. For their origin we must 

dence. Calderon's autos partook of pagan 
mysteries and Christ's miracles, blended in 
what wc would now term a rather incongruous 

.Twhole.... . . . 

' On religious festivals the autOs were en- 
acted m the streets from house to house, in the 
rich quarters of the town. Giants, clownishly 
attired, danced to arouse the merriment of the 
onlookers, and then, after 'a -brief musical pre- 
lude, the -play was begun. After the play came 
the "Interlude," made famous through the 
genius of John Heywood of Elizabethan times, 
and then followed more music and a dance by 
fairies or gypsies. 

Cahlcron was an indefatigable worker. He 
has left seventy-three autos and one hundred 
and eight dramas. It is impossible for anyo nc 
not conversant with the Spanish tongue to 
give an impartial criticism of his p l a y s, for it 
is scarcely fair to judge the work of any writer 
simply through the translations. — . — : — _ 

That Calderon was a great dramatist we 
may accept without a doubt. Writers well 
qualified to_ pass judgment, place him in the 
same class with Haute ami Shake-peaie, and 
he ha s been styled tfrc "SpanisU Deii Jonson," 
though he is a' far more eloquent wrirer^tban 
the last-named, and his power of description 
almost t^nvallecl. Like jonson, a poet 
of the court and made his plays to appeal to 
royalty and its followers. He is distinctly rep- 
resentative of the country, his autos and playsr 
are Spanish to the core! "To know Calderon 
is to know the mind of the Spain of the Seven- 
teenth Century.''

the United States, nearly a century later, 
adopted their Const itution, they followed the 
plan, which the English Parliament/ had • re- 
jected during the reign of William and Mary, 
with the result that the) do not enjoy minis- 
terial responsibility. None "f the histories 
availa ble go. c the name of the statesman who 
first suggested the adoption of this system m 
England/" Tosnbh he was one who "buiMed 
far "wiser than he knew." Ministerial respon- 
sibility was further ensured by the passing of 
a resolution requiring all public business) to 
be transacted By the l'ri\ y Council, and that 
the King should be-incapable of performing any 
evceutive act without tlie sanction of his min- 
isters. Thus the British Constitution, as we 
call it today, was fully established, and it was 
s' i-rngiheiicd by the enactment of a law pro- 
tiding that judges should be removed only on 
an address from parliament to) the Crown, ami 
lhc-- abol i tion "-of -the censorship ■ or the press. 
Having acconqdishe.l these things. Parliament 
• ■ .eccded to reduce the strength of the stand- 
ing annv. and determine the accession tt> the 

throne. • — — — ; — - : 

\\ illiam and Mar\ had no chi.ldren ,the 
latter having died m, i(>Q4. and although \\ il- 
' ham survived, her eight years, be did not re- 
.' marry. It became necessary, therefore, to pro- 
vide for the succession. Janics II. had died, 
and although the King of Prance had formally 
recognized hJs sou as King of England, the. 
English people themselves were resolute that 
he should not ascend tjie throne. They were 
determined 'on maintaining the Crown Op 'he - 
head of Protestants mily. 

Marv. it will be remembered, was daughter 
of James 11. She had a sister. Auue. who 
was married to Prince/George of Denmark, a 
Protestant, and she was herself a Protestant. 
She was therefore, in poinl of heirship, next in 
succession, and h e r « . 1 ig jo u s^.y i ews_ vv^re^ 41L „ ' 
course, acceptable t'o Parliament. But at the 
time, of the death bf William she was child 
less. She had had seventeen children, all of 
■whom had died in jnfancy, except the Duke of 
Gloucester, who died during the reign of Wil- 
liam and Mar>. It was therefore necessary to 
provide for the MR-ccssion after the death of 
Anne, or in the event of her predeceasing 
William. By the ordinary rules of law. the 
right of succession- after Anne was vested in 
lite descendants of the Duchess of Savoy, 
granddaughter of Charles 1 . but they were 
Roman Catholics, and hence could not be con- 
sidered. The descendants <>f Charles I. and 

Charles II. being therefore barred from the 
throne, it was ncccssarv for Parliament to go 
one. step farther bark, if thr Crown was to be 
kept in the kingl; line lames 1 had a daugh- 
ter.-- Elizabeth, who bad married the Elector, 
Palatine. She_iiaiLIiad twelve children, all of 

.whom rlied except one, Sophia, who 'married'' 
ihe Elector of Hanover. She was the nearest ' 

'Protestant in right of descent to the throne, 
and the choice of Parliament fell upon her In 
the first yi ai of the reign of William and Mary 
it hail been enacted that any person who, 
should. profess the Roman Catholic religion 

should be forever excluded from the throne. 

and the Ad of Settlement, as it is called, after 
declaring the Crown should gO, after the death 
of Anne, to Sophia,/ Electress and Duchess of 
Hanover, and the /heirs of her bod) being 
Protestants, weiH on to declare that to whom- 
soever the crown should thereafter come

England as -by law- esmblislied Turing the 
reign of Anne, it was enacted that to dispute 
the right of the sovereign, acting in conjunc- 
tion with Parliament to settle the succession 
should be high treason. Blackstohc thus ex- 
plains the meaning of the Act of Settlement :

not always speak in language that would look

about nothing in particular, ..and after a pause 
he began to quote: "I lift up mine- eyes to the 
Hills from whence cometh my help; mv help 
cometh from the Lord' which made I leav en and 
-Earth, Bvhohl lie that keepeth Israel shall

ment of silence, he said: "Do you know that 
when 1 have had a particularly hard day. and 
things have seemed to go wrong. I often come 
and stand here, look at those mountains and 
recall those words. It gives me fresh faith, 
hope' and courage to do so." 

There are some people to whom the less,,,,, 
of the f3ible seem of no account. As they put 
,1.. they ar,C well enough for weaklings, for wo- 
men or for children, but hot for red-blooded 
men like 'us. Doubtless you are acquainted 
with some of these self-styled "red-blooded" 
people. They claim to be men of the world 
par emphasis. Do they not Sometimes when 
they have been indulging too freely, go into 
places where they would not go when full v re- 
sponsible? Do they not sit up to the wee sma' 
hours. Over a card table and wake up in the 
morning with a dark brown taste in their 
mouths? Hence they are men of the world, and 
"red-blooded." Just in passing, they mav be 
reminded that the man who wrote the 'words 
q uote d above had more .experience in a week 
than they are likely to have in their whole 
lues. David was red-blooded enough to suit 
the most strenuous of them. But, say Sp'me of 
these people, you are quoting from the Bible, 
and IK) «»ne now takes the Bible serious! v. ex-

btrt we will suppose that the ground is tenable 
and that the Bible is an r xcccdinglv human 
book, as it in point of fact is. Here are a few 
things that may not whollv be unworthy of 
consideration even by , -those whose blood is 
the reddest : 

There is no doubt that the Bible is a very 
ancient book, some parts of it being vrrv much 
< ,lder than other* ; 

There is no doubt that there was a king of 
Israel named David, and that he was a man , 
who from humble beginnings rose to the high- 
est position attainable by any man in his na- 
tion ; • ' ^ 

There is no doubt that he lived an exceed 
ingly strenuous life and had a wjde range of 

There is no reasonable doubt that he either 
wrote, or had written for him., the Psalm i, 
which are attributed to him; 

There, is no <;loubt..,that..m^Ahese Psalms he

cruel things, as the narrative alleges, any more

of human weaknesses and also full of human 
strength. Me made hi< m i s t a ke s , and s-*>mr of 
them were very bad. The stronger the ca-\ 
you can make our on this point, tlie strongei 
the leSson from his experience is. It was this 
StrefiUOUS, wilful and sometimes wicked man, 
who. in the hour of danger, felt that "lie that 
keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep." 
Often wc hear men say of the city authorities, 
that they arc foolish not to learn from the ex- 
perience of other places; and yet we ourselves 
refuse to learn from the experience of Other 
men, and especially from those men, whose 

quite as absolutely hereditary as formerly ; and lives are spread before us and who have poured

The Arabs and Berbers are apparently distinct, 
races, and there Seems to be reason for believ 
ing that there was a race inhabiting the ex- 
treme west northwest of Africa before the 
Berbers came from some eastern home. These 
people are not to be confounded in anv wav 
with the N'egroes. for they are wholly a dif- 
ferent type. Neither are the Arahs m any sense 
Negroes, although it seems .probable that thev 
are a mixed race, one branch coming from the 
nearby portion of Africa and the other from 
ihe north, perhaps originally from ' Central ■

Negro stock. The Arab type predominales 
down the eastern coast as far south as Zanzi- 
bar, although there is much admixture of blood, 
especially of the Portuguese. An approximate 
estimate of the number of people who are 01 
Arab or Berber origin is 50,000,000. The fact 
that they are all Mohammedans has led to a 
close resemblance between these two races. 

The- Egyptians are. as far as is known 

neither Arab nor Berber. They seem to be a

casion, terribly cruel. Their industry is mar

described as -a very handsome people, and al-

Armenians is of long standing and apparently 
irradicablc. During the last hundred years 
there has been a cleavage between such, of the 
Druses as were chiefly of Maronitc stock and 
the remainder of the nationality. The Sultan

is more nominal than actual. 

where "Spain's proud heart swelleth." His 
parents were noble, and as a child Calderon 
was surrounded by kindness and luxury. His 
delicate, refined, scholarly face is indicative 
of his character. HeTattended the -University 
of Salamanca, and after graduating served for 
some years in the. army'. Date in life he took 
religious vows, though this final changing of 
his profession did not mean a change of views, 
as he had always been a devout follower of the 
Roman faith. 

His friendship with Lope de Vega had uti- 
doubtedly a great influence on his life and 
work, as had also 1ns familiarity with the phil- 
osophy of most of the great thinkers of an- 
tiquity.' He gave his first effort to the world 
when he was nineteen. Il was called "Tlve-Be-, 
votion to the Cross." and shows considerable 
constructive skill. His "Circe." which he pro- 
duced at thirty-four, was a wonderful spectacu- 
lar performance and was enacted on the pond 
,,f the Buen Retim. It called for magnificent, 
stage equipment and was considered one of the 
most marvelous dramatic exhibitions ever 
given. However, it is not In the same class 
with the same plays which he wrote later. His 
Style is always simple, forceful and dramatic, 
and in his later pfoduet'iotis hr-displays won-, 
dertut p ow er and a sublime philosophy. Some 
Of his most famous plays are. "Wonderful

Some Famous Dramatists 
and Their Master- Pieces 

(A. am B«rtrand Lttgrm) 



Wc have seen that modern English drams 

had its beginning in the early miracle plays, 
which depicted Biblical scenes and Biblical 
heroes and heroines, both to amuse and to in- 
culcate practical lessons. The autos for 
which Pedro Calderon is famous were an elab 
oration of these plays, designed by him to 
please the clergy and the people, ""The former 
had ob jected ent irely to .the secularization of 
the drama, and the people en masse, having be 
coine~'tircd 'of the plays with only a reHgioUS 
significance which appealed simphj to then 
ethical sense, had gone to the other extreme 
and welcomed oTity such plays as served to di- 
vert .their uimds iroiu serious thought. Jn 
these autos CaMeo'ii strived to recdnejje the 
two extreme opinions, and that lie Aid. so, is 
evidenced hv the great favor with which his 
works were received.

grown our love for fanciful things, as witness 
the unqualified success of "Peter pan" recent-.

out a doubt, but. like. a person, though it may 
have outgrown childish beliefs and imaginings,

it looked on life through the rainbow-eolorcd 
mists of childhood, which gave to everything 
in nature a halo of wondrous romance and 
bcautv. During the early part of the Seven-

How Trees Are Dwarfed 

All the varieties that are grown in the form 
of large trees can also be grown as dwarfs. 
Dwarf trees can be had only by inserting buds 
of the -desired variety into a slow growing 
stock. Practically all the dwarf apples are 
budded on a small fruited, wild European ap- 
ple called the Paradise. A strong growing 
variety like the Red Astrachan will then grow 
only eight to twelve feet high. Half dwarfs 
are budded on DoUc in. Hal f dwarfs come into 
bearing later than dwarfs, require more room 
and ultimately bear larger crops. Their mam 
use is in the new type of commercial orchard, 
in which standard, half dwarf and dwarf ap- 
ples are grown on the same land instead of the 
old plan of mixing strawberries and other 
small fruits with standard trees. 

Dwarf pears are budded on quince stocks, 
Dwarf plums have usually been put on my- 
robalan roots, but Prof. Waugh believes the 
best stock is the sand cherry. 

Peaches when worked on- a plum stock 
make a shorter growth : they are also much bet- 
ter adapted for growing on wet or heavy -oils 
and are 1. mgerd'ived than if worked on peach 
seedlings.. The cherries are usually -grafted on 
mahaleb stock, but some varieties do not suc- 
ceed well when worked directly on it. In such 
cases they are double grafted. Double graft- 
ing is also sometimes practiced with pears 
which do not take kindly to quince stock. To 
doable' graft buds of some varieties which 
thrive on the quince arc worked 00 quince 
stock and allowed to make a 'year's gTOWthj 
then the bud of the variety which it is wished 
to perpetuate*is put on the scion. 

In England, where the dwarf fruit trees are 
much more extensively grown than in this 
country, the common thorn (Crataegus Oxy- 
•acantha) has been successfully used as a stock. 

Dwarf trees are handled by only a few Am- 
erican nurserymen. Trained trees cost from 
S2.50 to $6.50 apiece according to the variety, 
the way they have been trained and the age. 

Good dwarf, untrained; yearling trees can 
be had, however, for about fifty cent-, and if 
you wish to graft the plants yourself Paradise 
stock may be obtained from most of the ner- 

The most desirable forms for' training fruit 
trees in America are the pyramidal or cone- 
shaped and the bush or round-headed. In Eu- 
rope thev are trained into many different 
shapes for special purposes, such as growing 
on walls, fences or along paths. For flat sur- 
faces simple and compound cordons and es- 
paliers arc more economical or space than 
bushes or pvramids. However m the greater 
pad of the United States fruit trees must not 
be trained directly on a wall a- they are, in 
Europe", because our hot summers will burn 
them, but they can be tried to a trellis six inch- 
es Or so away from the wall. In'thc cooler re- 
gions of the north where the SBattoTl ^ too short

Make the Soil Condition Ideal 

There • is no sense in trying to grow dwarf 
fruit trees in ordinary soil. It must be rich 
and well-drained. The ideal preparation la 
trenching at least two feet deep working in at 
this time a heavy application of manure. The 
same preparation as is given a grape border 
will give satisfactory results 

If the expense- of trenching the Whole piece 
is too great, then dig out the row where the 
trees are to stand two feet wide and deep. An 
admirable way to distribute the cost of the 
preparation pj the ground over several years 
is to prepare;' say, one-third or one-half of the" 
area at once and' plant the trees close together, 
say. four feet apart. The second year prepare 
the rest of the ground and transplant the trees. 
This transplanting the trees improves the root 
system. It is only the untrained yearlings that 
may be transplanted. When planting the 
trained trees, such as are carried in stock in our 
American nurseries, set them in their perman- 
ent locations. Never set the union between 

er. If possible, have the new leader start from 
the opposite side of the tree from which the 
previous leader started in order that the tree 
mav be perpendicular. 

The side shoots will naturally n-smiic such 
positions as to give the tree a symmetrical 
habit, but if they do not place stakes wdiere 
the branches Sh ould be. put! The branches- over 
and tie them. These branches need not be 
shortened until the late fall or early spring, 
when they must be shortened back to eight 
buds. The following spring all the branches 
will make vigorous growth, As soon as the 
~rr£wdy started! side shoots have seven or eight 
leaves pinch out the ends -of all . except the ter- 
minal one, which is left to grow and draw the 
sap. Pinch the leader out when it has made a 
growth of ten inches. If it makes another 
growth the same, season stop that also when it 
"gets ten inches long. All this about pruning 
sounds as if -it were a great amount of work, 
but really it is not. . All the necessary work 
can be done easily before or after office hours-.- 
Root Pruning Induces Early Fruiting 
When the trees have attained a height of 
six or eight feet and- are still growing tigof- 
ouslv, root pruning will be found helpful in 
bringing the fruit. This is done by running a 
spade dow n into the ground as deep as it can 
be pushed eighteen inches from the trunk. 
Have the spade sharp so that it will cut off 
clean all the roots and describe a circle clear 
around the tree. ■ ■'■< 
. The trees must be sprayed regularly once 
in ten davs or tWO weeks with Bordeaux mix- 
ture GOfitaining paris^greeri or other poison; all 
summer long, for the various fungous disease 
and insects. Should the San Jose scale be found 
in the trees spray with lice-sUlphur. wash, or 
use one of the miscible oils, following the 
manufacturers' directions very closely. For 
applying these spraying mixtures use one of- 
the small spray pumps haying a tank holding 
about five gallons. — P. T. Barnes in Garden

(Tulipa Katifmanniana vaA Auxea) 
One of the earliest Tulips in flower, T. kauT 
manniana, is not surpassed in beauty by any 
other species, although some may be more 'gor- 
geous in color and larger in size. Its earlineSS 
IS miic of its chief attractions, coming as itdoe-s- 
into flower on arsupn .y bo rde r early in Mar ch. 
A most variable spccicFsj this TurTcestairTufip 
ran ires in color from almost creamv white to 
others with golden yellow ones tinged on the 
outside of the petals with bright red. The flow- 
ers are of a rich golden yellow inside, with a 
splash o"f red near the base, while the outer 
.surface of the 'petal-, all but the margins are 
suffused with bright red. \ ariable in size as 
in coloring, the largest flower has petals which 
are nearly 4 inches in length. For growing in 
pans in the alpine house, T. kaufmanniana and 
its varieties are among the most valuable, of 
early flowering bulbous plants. Six bulbs in a 
7-inch pan make a charming display. They 
should be potted up in autumn in a mixture 
loamy soil, with plenty of -and and a little lcat- 
motild. After potting the pan should be 
plunged in ashes tO th< rim in S&me sheltered 
place, and left there through the winter until 
the leaves and flowers begin tojpush up. Then- 
it- may -be taken into the house to expand its 
blooms. After the flowers have- faded they 
should be jucked off to prevent seeding, and 
the pan replunged and supplied With plenty of 
Water till growth has finished. Then the bulbs 
-hould be well ripened off. Some of the larger 
ones may do for another season, .while the 
smaller ones maj be planted out in ;1 bolder. 
It is, however, always advisable to procure 
fresh bulbs for potting up every autumn, as 
those which have been once used cannot be 
" relied on to give satisfaction , a second season.

Following 'out the foregoing instructions, 
vou should haye plenty of mushrooms. Be 
careful not to get the manure wet when pre- 
paring it; as this delays and hinders your bed ; 
in fact, it is absolutely necessary to save it 
and prepare in some dry place. There is suf- 
ficient moisture in the manure itseH during the 
process of heating, but if conditions occur in 
too dry, a place and y/ur bed needs water, warm 
it welbbefoVe applying, say about 1 00 degrees, 
an occasional sprinkling will keep it right. 
When preparing material for your bed, be 
careful to see there is no old iron, such as 
pieces of hoop iron, or nails. It is stated as a 
curious fact that iron will prevent any mush 
rooms. It is recorded that among rival mush- 
room growers tfi France care is taken of the 
beds to prevent any enemy from sticking nails 
into it, as this meant failure. 

In. about -six Aveelcs.. 01 two .months, if the 

temperature keeps rmht. mushrooms should

a slight twist so as not to disturb t-he little ones, 
and be careful to fill up with good soil any 
holes made in the bed by removing. Never cut 
them off with a knife, as the stum]) remaining 
will decay and infect the surrounding growth.

To a great many people the art of growing 
mushrooms is quite ■ a. - mystery, and even 
amongst gardeners of considerable experience 
and skill their cultivation is attended with a 
good deal of guess work, because they lack the 
knowledge of two or three essential points, 
which, if attended to at the outset, the after 
crop of this delicious esculent can be looked 
forward to with absolute certainty. Kvcryonc 
TiKe^njushrooms, and there is no reason why 
anyonewho can procure the manure and has 
a place, either in a shed or out-building or a 
cellar, may not have a bed producing plenty of 
mushrooms the year around, excepting June ur 
Tuly — and even ", hot months they can 
be grpwn if kept covered up from the flies. 

Mushrooms will grow anywhere when 
given the proper material-, and dark, dry eel 
larS not being used for anything else are ideal 

places, spaces under verandahs, or the prepared 

manure may be packed m boxes any size, SO 
loug as they arc deep enough to hold eighl or 
nine inches of manure. Old bureau drawers 

serve capitally for this purpose — in fact, then- 
is no limit to their cultivation in places that 
may be convenient or that, ingenuity can SUg 

A good ,plan to have successive crops of 
mushrooms is tolEeep adding to your bed fresh 
manure treated as directed, removing the old 
portion as it throws off the crop. Mushrooms 
can be grown anywhere on shelves built for 
them in the cellar, making one above another, 
or you can have a^bed in a barrel by filling 
the' barrel, spawning it— having regard to the 
temperature — and then cutting holes in the 
sides of the barrel at various places, through 
which openings the mushrooms will appear. 
To sum up. the whole art of mushroom cultiva- 
tion lies in observing these rules: ' 

ii Get your manure fresh and keep from 

2. Turn daily and mix a third of good soil 
with it. 

jj. Make your bed. when pounded thoroughly 
firm, to be about eight inches in depth; any 
deeper would make it heat too much, and any 
thiniaer DT shallower would not be enough. 

4. Spawn 't when the heat is receding from 
ninety degrees to eighty-five degrees, never 
more, as the heat would kill the spawn'. 

5. Wait ten davs after Led is spawned be- 
fore vou put on top layer of soil, so as to allow 
excess heat and moisture to escape. 

6. Do not water unless you have to, and 
have it at blood heat. 

7. Have the temperature near sixty degrees,, 
no more. 

As it takes six weeks tp two months for the 
nop to grow, you can make the beds any time. 

To have certain success, procure if possible so long as you avoid it cropping when flies 

ally if planted in a warm, sunny position. The 
variety aiirea is, equally hardy and. with the 
ruber, is well worth a nook in the rock garden, 
where it would be very effective.

The beautiful denude flowered po'-grown

are now grown so extensively by various com-

the appearance of our floral displays, more 
especially during the late Spring and early 
summer. ■ Although readilv procurable, many 
would, find much delight in growing their own 
specimens instead of purchasing them in bloom. 
The large growers formerly grafted their 
plants; and these plants made tremendous 
lengths of growth, but the flowering was not 
always a success. Thev have long since found 
that plants potted Up from the open ground,

After the first rank heat has escaped, make 
the bed by placing the manure in layers, 
pounding it firmly. Pound it as' you would 
pound the soil in setting posts; the more com- 
pact yotir bed is. the longer it retains the heat, 
and the spawn travels quicker through it. 

In locating your bed, do not put it on a cold

The best trails' bf bloom are obtained from

to retain two or three of the finest and one or 
two of the older growths that bear several lat- 
erals, these latter being cut back hard, even 
to the second eye. Brisk syringing on fine 
mornings and careful watering at the roots 
will be necessary, and an early application of 
some good fertilizer should bc-gtven, pointing 
this into the surface soil with a label. Allow

on in the new bed causes moisture or hot 
steam, and this must be allowed to escape; SO 
that if the soil was put on before this occurred 
jt would be retained in the bed and kill the 
spawn. This is the actual cause for the failure 
in nine out of ten cases of attempts to gr.ow 
mushrooms, and too much stress cannot be 
laid on these two points in gro wing iliem,: The. 
first, being careful not to spawn the bed till 
the heat, is receding and is about ninety de- 
grees or eighty-five degrees, and the second, 
not to cover with the top two inches of soil till 

abound. 1 would not advise making any beds 
in May. It is not necessary to grow mush- 
rooms in dark places, but they will grow there 
'as well as in the light. — J. McPherspn in Can-

So much interest has always been taken in 
the sweet pea competition at the flower show, 
— that it was thought it might he of interest to 
f tell how these flowers were grown. In many 
instances the blooms shown at the Victoria 
show live Beert^iQt^ged by experts to be 
v equal to anything produced in this line in the 
world. The reason for this is that so many 
people here take a keen interest in the growing 
of the, flowers, <and especially in getting a fine 
display for exhibition purposes. 

When seen in regard ta. this, one of the local 
growers who. has been very successful in win- 
ding prizes told how he did it. 

"In the early spring," he said. "I trench the 
ground to a depth of eighteen, inches or more, 
digging out all the soil and mixing it well with 
manure. J also work in a little bone nicaT at 
_thij same time. T then fill in the trench with 
thi& mixture to within about six or eight incit- 
es of the top, and this is filled with ordinary 
garden soil. 

"The peas are sown In boxes early in 
March or a little -later than that in the open. 
As soon as they are started. 1 put them out of 
doors, and. about five or six weeks later plant 
them out in the trenches from nine to twelve 
inche^ apart, rjr perhaps further. Many people 
do not sow in boxes, but 1 find it is better '■> 
do so. I give them a good soaking at the time 
they are transplanted, or they do riot start, but 
they do.not require any regular watering-ivntil- 
a.good deal later. — »

"As soon as the vines commence to flower 
I feed them with weak liquid manure, applied 
about once a week or sometimes oftener. This 
IS an important feature, as by that means the"

an indication of what may be done in this de- 
lightful climate later ^on," when everyone be- 
• comes imbued with the desire to make this a 
city beautiful, and is willing to spend a little 
time and money to this end. 

The people who are conducting the show 
are public-spirite4-men and women, who have 
given much time and thought to the matter 
and who get no reward except the knowledge 
that the community' is benefiting therein-., and 
that the interests of flower-growing may be 
advanced. In the past the organizers of the 
show have been almost disheartened at the 
apathy of the public, but this spring, w hen the 
people flocked to see the splendid disphiv of 
roses, they felt that their work was not all 
thrown away, but that at last the people of the 

.city had begun to take an Interest, 

While the attendance at the rose show 
was large, it is expected that next Wednesday 
and Thursday all previous records will be 
broken. True, tnanv are away taking their 
holidays, but even with -that drawb.u k. s< i gr< at 
is t he inTere st- being taken on every hand,, thaT" 
there is sure to be a very large turnout. 

Several days ago there were no less than 
-twenty-two entries for the baskets of flo wers , - 
over jtwenty for the decorated table-, and a 
good many for the bowls. This in itself means 
a fine exhibit. Everyone likes. to sec the beau-

avenue of Delphiniums, ornamenting a drive or 
straight walk, is a beautiful sight. They look 
well in beds also, arranged the same distance 
apart each way. They are grand grown in 
masses or large groups of separate colors, and 
"lay be associated with shrubs to great ad- 
vantage/succeeding well in shrubberies owing 
to their robustness. A succession ..of. flowers 
may be expected front spring to early autumn, 
especially if the soil be well prepared and not 
allowed to get too dry, and the spikes which 
have done flowering early be cut down to the 
ground; fresh 'growth will then be produced, 
which will give further bTosjoirb W e have 
noticed very handsome spikes of bloom in bur 
nurseries as late as the latter days of Novem- 
ber. Copu-us watering in atmpa will he at 

"tended by increased "size -in spike and flower ; 
m lact. m seasons of prolonged drought and 
on sonic soils, water is absolute! v a necessity 
if the varieties arc to exhibit themselves in 
their true size and beauty of flower and spike! 
Top dressing is greatly recommended on cer- 
tain sciils, instead of the bare" surface-of the 
ground being left exposed to the sun. Some 

~o~F; the neater dwarf alpine ami other small 
hardy plants .may be utilized to plant between 
and around the Delphiniums. Coal ashes 

- S t rew n , over the c r owns will protect' the plants 

-front shjgs through winte-r--and-sp.ring. As-we-A 
have intimated, any. garden soil suits the Del- 
phinium ; it is. however, necessary to secure 

sorts such as are offered below, -in order to ob- 

plantirig the bulbs in a well-drained place and 
by arranging drain pipes so that the wateT 
poured down their) will he carried directly to 
the roots. It must be remembered that 1,. 
auratum .makes stem as well as bulb roots. 

' and that . both, need to be protected from 
drought. There are not many gardeners who 
will take so much trouble with a plant, but L. 
auratum is worth all the trouble that can be 
taken with it. 

L. speciosum. of which there are many 
varieties, is luckily much easier. It needs the 
same kind of culture, but. with it. will often 
flourish for years. Usually it suffers' in our 
gardens from lack Of nourishment, or stag- 
nant moisture in winter or sunstroke in vujn- 

- met ; but'thi "s talks should .grow- up into 'full 

sun if they -are to blossom well before the 
autumn. Of its varieties; Melpomene and 
Magniftcum, both heavily marked with crim- 
son, and. Kraetzeri, pure white-, arc the best. 
— K-r-ae4zeri flowers late, and is apt to suffer if 
autumn sets in early. It should therefore be 
planted in as sunny a place as- possH)Te7"TeTtTi - 
er L. auratum nor L. speciosum likes cold, 
sunless situations; and the difficulty is to find 
a warm, sunny, spot for them where they will 
not suffer from drought. L. browni. a most 
magnificent- white trumpet lily, marked with 
brown on the outside, is less impatient of 
drought and will prosper for some years in a 
border of light rich soil, where it is sheltered

The culture of Delphiniums is exceedingly 
simple, and the results out of all proportion to 
the slight amount of care necessary. They 
thrive in almost any position, and may be 
planted at any time of the year, provided that 

i in summer the plants are not too forward and

With all the lilies fpf which we recommend it.' J ' 
The manure of course should not be rank or' 
near the bulbs; and it should always be com 
luin d with good drainage. It is-prpbabiy dan- 
gerous in low lymg garden-, where the soil is 
heavy ; but those are not the gardens for most 
lil ies. They thrive best where the drainage is 
-harp and the SOji light and enriched with 
humus. But there is still a great deal to be. 
learnt about them, and many of them have 
never yet been thoroughly acclimatized.

Ldium auratum is a lily that has verv sel- 
dom heen thoroughly established in this Coun- 
try,' probably because it never gets over the 
-hoek of transportation. It .likes more nour- 
ishment ihan .it usually gets in our gardens 
when grown among rhododendrons and aza- 
leas, and the old idea that it hates manure is 
probably a mi-take \\ e recommend that it be 
planted w ith a good dose of manure under the 
bulbs ami mulched with manure every sum 
mcr. The soil may be either a rich peat or 
loam, well mixed with leaf mould. The -round 
round y should never be bare, as the bulbs aTe" 
liable to Minsrroke. It will thrive tor a time 
among bushy plants m the bonier ojj amoim 
azaleas and rhododendrons, if it is well nour> 
|Shed. The variety Platyphvllum is f ar super- 
ior to the type and more easily grown. The 
most important point in u- culture is to keep 
the bulbs motst all the summer and at the 
same time to protect them from stagnant 
moisture m the winter. . This is not easv in 
most gardens: but it can be best done bv

When will sejence explain the mv-tcrv pi

some sweet odor? Even more than an old song, 
certain perfumes have the power jo set the Very

Perfumes Have been helcTm high estimation 
Horn the most ancient times. Che Egyptians 
prepared them for various purposes — for em 
balming the dead, as offerings to the gods, and 
for domestic purposes. They anointed their 
bodies w ith sweet-scented oils, which thev also 
poured upon the head- of newly arrived guests 
In the, Bible frequent reference is, made to 
the use of perfumes by the Hebrews. The 
.Phoenicians, .Wyrians. and Persians arc 
known to have made great use of them, both 
on their persons and on their shrines. 

Arabs into Spain.| In the Middle Ages, France 
anek I taly were the most- conspicuous for their 
manufacture. Intense and fragrant tapers were 
consumed in the/ churches even as far back as 
the baptism of Clovis. Charlemagne used per- 
fumes, and Philip Augustus granted a charter, 
to the master perfumers in 1190. 

Alcoholic perfumes are supposed to have 
been first made in the fourteenth century. The 


first was distilled from rosemary bv Queen 
Elizabeth, of Hungary, who received the re- 
cipe froip a hermit, and by the u^e of it is said 
tp ba\e preserved her heaut\ to obi age. When

Winners at the National Show in Regents 
Park, London 

\!i hough the (low er show w hich opens on 
Wcdin sda_\ afternoon is not particularly 
rose -how, there will be a number of roses on 
exhibition, and as the season witen varieties 
must be selected is fast approaching, nruch 
interest will be taken in this department. Pro- 
fessional growers this year have 10 pay an 
entry fee and also to put up their own -tand-. 
This shows the value of the show to the pro- 
fessional, who is willing to do this for the 
advertising he gets. 

'f ii''-< who are interested in rosc< will be , 
interested to know what varieties won the 
prizes 111 the National Pose Show in Regent's 
Park, London. The following is a clipping 
from one of the London newspapers in regard 
tp this: 

Throughout the show the single-flowered 
varieties were most popular, from their beauty 
either as expanded flowers, when the stamens 
add to their charm (Lady Curzon and Macran- 
t ha are instances that were repeated again and 
again ) or as buds with a number of remark- 
aide shades, as in Irish Llcgatice or Gott- 
fried Keller. These were popular in dinner- 
table decorations, baskets, and vases, as well 
aa in numerous group- 

The classes for 18 blooms of one variety 
on bamboo stands were well contested. — £ B. 
Clark (P.entley), was the best crimson. Fran 
Karl Druschki (King's Acre Nurseries) was 
the best "white or yellow.'' although in com- 
petition with a stand of Melanic Sou pert, 
which contained the finest hybrid tea bloom 
in the show. The rose-tinted Mrs. Theodore 
Roosevelt (Priori was the best of other' 
shades The popularity of a few Varieties was 
remarkably demonstrated in a series of classes 

lor amateurs-. In the cIas N for blooms of one 
variety Other than tea or noisette, 'nine out. of 
twelve growers of less than a thousand .roses 
showed Frau Karl Druschki: five out of nine 
entries from, growers of less than 2,000, and t 
half of the entries from growers of less than 
3,000 were also Frau Karl, and although in the 
class for larger growers only one of seven 
competitors showed this variety, it was the 
..winning stand. Among tea*-,- Mme. Jules 
Gravereaux and White Maman Cochet showed 
almost equal popularity. 

The best six blooms in the .show, each of 
which secured the society's medal, were

not rcmaj-lcatble i any way except that one of 
them was tall. 

Together with the crowd I followed the 
lads. All their songs were merry, and no ex- 
pression, of grief was heard* while the proces- 
sion was going along; but as soon' as i we came 
tQ the next house at which the lads were to be 
treated/ the lamentations of the women began. 
It was' difficult to make out what they .were 
saying; only a word here and there could be 
distinguished: "death . . . father and mothef 
. . nativrland . .." artel after every verse, 
the woman who led the chanting took a deep 
breath, and burst out into long-drawn moans, 
followed by hysterical lfeughter. The women 
-were the mothers and sixers of the conscripts. 
Beside the lamentations of these relatives, one 
heard the admonitions of their friends. 

"Now then, Matryona, that's enough: You 
must be tired out," f heard one woman say4 
consoling another who was lamenting. 

The rids entered the cottage. , 1 remained 
outs'ide talking with a peasant acquaintance, 
Vastly Orehof, a former pupil of mine. His 
s,,n, .',nr of the five, was the married man who 
had been sinking seconds as he went along." - • 
"Well," I said, "it is a pity!" 
"What's to be done? Pity or not, one has 

to serve." , '' 

And he told me of his domestic affairs. He 
had three sons: the eldest was living *at home, 
the seeond was now being taken, and a 'third 
(who like the second had gone av/ay to work> 
was contributing dutifully to the support of 
pRaVlng bowed to me, sta rte d t h e home^j The one who wa s le a ving h a d evi- 

Voiccs and an accordion sounded as if close 
by,' though through the mist nobody* could be 
seen. It was a workday morning, and I was 
surprised to hear music. 

• 'Oh, it's the recruits' leave-taking,!' thought 
I, remembering that I had heard something a 
few days before, about five men being drawn 
from our village. "Involuntarily attracted by 
the merry song, I went in the direction whence 
it proceeded, . „ 

As I approached the singers, the sound of 
song and adcordion suddenly stopped. The 
singers, that is the lads,, who were leave-taking, 
entered the double fronted brick cottageX be- 
longing to the father of one of them. Before 
the door stood a small group of women girls 
and children. 

While I was finding out whose sons were 
going, and why they had entered that cottage, 
the lads themselves, accompanied by their 
mothers and sisters, came out at the door. 
There were five of them: four hachelors and 
one married man. Our village is near the 
town where nearly all these conscripts had 
worked. They were dressed town-fashion, evi-="* 
dentlv wearing their best clothes: pea-jackets, 
new "caps, and high, showy boots. Conspicu- 
ous among them was a young fellow, well built 
though not tall, with a sweet, merry, expres- 
sive face, a small beard and moustache just be- 
ginning to sprout, and bright hazel eyes.; As 
he came out. he at once took a big, expensive- 
looking accordion that was hanging over-Ms

companiment. One could not help marveling at 
the energy and spirit of the player, as he beat 
time accurately, stamped his// foot, stopped 
short, and then, after a pause, again took up the 
melody most merrily, exactly on the right beat, 
while he gazed around with his kind, hazel 
eyes. Evidently ^he hajd_a.real and, great tajent 
for music. 

I looked at him and (so at least it seemed 
to-me) he felt abashed when he met my eyes, 
and with a twitch of his brows he turned 
away, and again burst out with everf more 
spirit than before. When he reached the fifth 
and last of the cottages, the lads entered and I 
followed them. All five of them were made to 
sit round a table covered with a cloth, on which 
were bread and vodka. The host, the man I 
had been talking to, who was now to take 
leave of his married son, poured out the vodka 
and handed it round. The lads hardly drank at 
all (at most a quarter of a glass) or even hand- 
ed it back after just raising it .to th^ir lips, The 
hostess cut Some bread, and served slices 
round to eat with the vodka. - 

While I was looking at the lads, a woman, 
dressed in clothes that .seemed to me strange 
and incongruous, got down from the top__Qi 
the oven, close to where 1 sat. She wore a 
light green dress (silk, I think) with fashion- 
ahle trimmings, and high-heeled boots. Her 
fair hair was arranged in' quite the . modern 
style, like a large round cap, and she wore-big, 

—ring-shaped, gold earrings. Her face was 
neither sad nor cheerful, but looked as if she 

— were unaided 

playing the" merry -tune of "Baryhya," "running 
his fingers nimbly over the keys and keeping 
-exact time— as— he— moved with rhythmic step 
Jauntily down the road. ' < \^ 1 

Beside him walked a thick-set. fair-haired 
lad, also of medium height. He l oo k e d gai ly 
from side to side, and sang seconds with spirit, 
in 'harmony with the firs} S&*g€* He W&S the 
married one. These two walked ahead of the 
other three, who were also well dressed, and 

dently not : sent home much. 

"He has married a^iownswoman. His wife 
is not fit for our work. He is a lopped -off 
branch and thinks only of keeping himself. To 
be sure, it's a pity, but it can't be helped!" 

While we were talking, the lads came out 
into the street, and th.e lamentations,, shrieks, 
laughter and adjurations recommenced. After 
standing about for, some five minutes; the pro- 
cession moved on with songs and accordion ac- 

After getting down, she went out into the 
passage, clattering ^with the heels of her new- 
boots and paying no heed, to the lads. All 
about this woman — her clothing, the offended 
expression of her face, and above all her car- 
rings—was so foreign to the surroundings, that 
I could not understand how she had come to 
"He -on top of Vastly Orehof s oven" 1 asked a 
woman sitting near me who she was. 

"Vasily's daughter-in-law ; she has been a 

housemaid'," was the answer. 

/The host began offering vodka a third time, 
but the lads refused, rose, said grace, thanked 
the hosts, and went out. 

In the street the lamentations recom- 
menced at Once. The first to raise her voice 
was a very old woman with a bent back. She 
lamented in such a peculiarly piteous voice, 
and wailed so, that the women kept soothing 
the sobbing, staggering old creature, and sup- 
ported her by her elbows.'.. 
"Who is she?" I inquired. 
"W'hv, it's his granny ; Vasily's mother, that 

is." •; 1 

The old woman hurst into hysterical laugh- 
ter and fell into the arms of the women who 
supported her, and just then the procession 
started again, and again the accordion and the 
merry voices struck up their tune. At the end 
of the village the procession was overtaken by 
t.,he caTts which were to carry the conscripts to 
the District Off ice. The weeping and wailing 
Stopped. The accordion-player, getting more 
elated, bending his head to one side aiid resting 
on one foot, turned out the toes of the other 
and stamped with it. while his fingers produced 
brilliant "tioritures," and exactly at the right 
instant the bold, high, merry.tones of his song, 
and. the ; seebnds-of Vasily's son, again chimed 
in. Old and^young, and especially the children 
who surrounded the crowd r and I with them, 
fixed their eyes admiringly on the singer. 

"He is clever, the rascal !" said one of the 

'Sorrow weeps, artd sorrow sings!'" re- 

fine lad. '/ 

The old man raised his cap and bowed to 
me, but did not hear my question, 
"What did you say?" asked he. 
I had not recognized him, but as soon as he 
spoke 1 knew him at oncy. He is the hard- 
working, good peasant who, as often happens, 
seems specially marked out for misfortune, 
first two horses were stolen from him, then his 
house burnt down, and then his wife died; I 
had not seen Prakofey for a long time and re- 
rn'embered him as a bright red-haired man of 
medium 'height ; whereas he was now not re^i, 
hut quite grey-haired, and small. 

"Ah, I'rokofey, it's you!" f said, "I was 
asking w hose son that fine fellow is— that 'on. 
who has just spoken to Alexander?" 

"That one?" Prokofey replied, pointing with 
a motion of his head to the tall lad. He shook 
his head and mumbled something I did not ur 

"I'm asking whose son the lad is?" I repeat- 
~ed, and turned to look at Prokofey. 

plied another. 

At that moment one of the young fellows : 
whom we were seeing off— ^the tall one— came 
up with long,, energetic strides, and stooped to 
speak to the one who played the" accordion. 

"What a fine fellow," I- thought; "they will 
put him in the Guards." I did not know who 
he was or whatThouSe he belonged to- 

"Whose son is That gallant fel- 
low?" I asked a little old man, pointing to the 

His face was puckered and his jaw trem- 

"He's mine!" he muttered, and turning 
away and hiding his face in his handT ^egaTrto 
whimper like a child. _ 

And only then, after the two words, "He's 
mine!" spoken by Prokofey, did I realize, not 
only in my mind but in my whole being, the 
horror of ^-wha^Avas-taking place ..before, my eyes 
that memorable misty morning. All the dis- 
jointed, incomprehensible, strange things I had 
seen suddenly acquired a simple, clear, and ter- 

rible significance. 1 became painfully ashamed 
of having looked on as at an interesting spec- 
tacle. I stopped, conscious of having acted ill, 
and I turned to go home. 

And to think- that these things are at the 
present moment being done to tens of thou- 
sands of men all over Russia, and have been 
,-tktae, and will long continue, to be done, to the 
meek, wise and saintly Russian people, who are 
.so cruelly and treacherously deceived! 

An Unpretentious Poem 

Suggestive to some extent of Tom Ho6d, 
and yet charmingly original, the following un- 
pretentious little poem, "The Washerwoman's 
Song" which has become familiar to hundreds 
of readers, and which ha.s grown yellow m 
many a scrap-book, was fir-t published under 
the pseudonym of "Ironquill." Its excellence 
along with the excellence of other linies-gTvcn 
to the world by the same anonymous writer, 
created a curiosity as to the author's, person- 
ality, which eventually discovered him to be 
Mr.' Eugene F. Ware- ex-Commissioner of Pen- 
sions .for the United States of America. The 
lines follow: 

In a very humble cot, 
I n a rather quiet spot. 
In the suds and in the snap 
Worked a woman full of hope; 
Working, singing, all alone, 
An a sort of undertone. 
"'With a Saviour for a friend, 
/lie will Beep me 1 to the end." 

Sometimes happening al<>ne. 
/ ■ 1 had heard the semii-song, 
\nd f oftfen used t<i> smile 

She was humming all day long, 
AVith the Saviour fur a friend, 
He will keep me to the end." 

It's a song I do not sing, 
h'.-r I scarce believe a thing ,. , 
Of the stories that are told 
( )f the miracles of old ; 
But 1 know that her belief 

Zlk the anodyne of grief. 
And will always he a triend 
That will keep her to the erfd.

Mot in sorrow nj^r in glee, 
Working all day long was -he, 
As her children/three or four, 
Played, around her on the floor; 
Bat in' monotones the song 


"Just a trifle, lonesome she, 
lust as poor as poor could be, 
'Brit Iter spirits always rose ••' 
Like the bubble- in the clothes; 
And though widowed and alone, 
Cheered her with the monotone,. 
( if a Saviour and a friend, 
Who would keep her to the end. 

I have seen her rub and scrub 
' >n the washboard in the tub, 
While the baby, sopped in suds, 
- Rolled and tumbled in the duds; 
Or was paddling in the pools 
With old scissors stuck in spools,,' 
She still humming of her Friend 
Who would keep her to the end. 


Human hopes and human creeds 
Have their root in human nepds ; 
And I would not w ish to strip *

Any SOng that shecan sing. 
Any hope that song can bring, 
For the Woman has a Friend 
Who will keep her to the end. 

little one, who has brought thee? If thou 
hasten not to say who has brought thee to this 
island, I give thee to know that thou shalt be 
in ashes, becoming somewhat that cannot be 
seen. Speakest thou to me? I hear it not. I 
am before thee, and thou knowest it not." lie 
took me in his mouth and bore me off to his 
resting-place, and laid me down without harm- 
ing me. 



What is the tale that I love best? 

Tell, O tell it at last for me, 
Waves that wash the golden west 

And that old castle by the sea. 

The clump of thrift that we carried home 
Still blooms on our own grey wad for me. 

Bright as it nodded above the foam 
In that old castle by the sea. 

There a tale that never was told 

Echoes, and crowns with light for me 

Ruined towers on the sunset's gold 
And crags that crumble over the sea. 

A ruined castle where no one dwells, 
A haunted castle of dreams for me. 
• And all around it sinks and swells 

The thunder-music of the sea.' • : 

Mr. Shaw and Aristotle 

Behind it throng the fir-clad hills 

W here many a song-bird built for me, 

And the deep ravines and the sparkling rills 
Of the little land by 'the western sea; 

Glens of fern where I u^ed to dream, 

A J nd all the dreamers dreamed for me: 
Whisper of wings and waves agleam 
Shadow of boughs and shine oftjie sea. 

Many of the Stories one bears' at the club, 
or at other places where folks ao congregate, 
"not excepting the excellent tea/rooms of Vic- 
toria, are the vintage of 4872L; B.C. Nay, we. 
•should say that MOST of the stories sb heard 
are of such vintage. And, moreover, the tellers 
have not the grace to admit tl.v .honorable §Lge 

• of their products. £Lueh is not the case with the 
following yarn. It is admittedly old, the oldest 

* oh record, in fact, ami. if any of our readers 
wish to doubt tin- statement, they may com 
municate their doubts to pS and we shall be 
glad to have them set forth. This slory, all 
about an old pack tar who, in' the reign of 
Pharaoh, found awrmderful is-ktn-d-. was recent- 
ly translated for the London Spectator from an 
ancient Egyptian manuscript in the state mu 
scum at St. Petersburg. History saith not 
whether it was ever submitted to an editor; 
therefore we know not if it was accepted. W e 
do not vouch for the truth of it, as it was told 
by a sailor. With these few preliminary re- 
marks, we launch forth into the tale: 

Be glad, O prince! See, we have reached 
the capital; they have taken the mallet and 
driven in the mooring-slake, and the ship's 
cable has been laid on land. They praise and 
thank God, and every man embraces another 
Our soldiers have returned in safety ; not one 
of our warriors is lost, for all that we reached 
the uttermost parts of Nubia\ a-;d hafc now 
passed the island of Senmet. See now, we 
have come home in peace ; we haVe reached our 
own land! 

i will recount to thee ; therefore, a like thing 
which happened to myself when* I journeyed 
to a mine of "the king, and went down to the 
sea in a ship of one, hundred and fiytv cubits in 
length and forty cubits in w idih. Therein were 
one hundred and fiftv sailors .of the best in 
Egypt. Thry- lonfcrd nn the skv. thrv looked 
on the laud, and their hearts were stouter than 
those 1 d lions. 

They foretold a storm before it had come; 
and foul weather when as yet it was not. The 
storm broke, while we were upon the sea, be- 
fore we could reaeh land. The wind arose, 
making a clamorous sound, apd brought with 
it a wave ot eight cubits. Xhye was a piece of 

WCiod against which I struck; bul the slop per 
iahe<k As to those that were! therein, not one 
of 'them was remaining. I Was cast upon an 
island by a wave of/The Baft, Three days I 
passed alone with my heart/as my companion, 
ami I lav in' the jr/idsl of/a thicket", and the 
shadow covered -me Tlw/n I sit etched forth' 
my legs to know what I /should put into my 
mouth. ., / .. / 

I heard a noise of thunder. I thought: "It 
is a wave of the sea." The trees cracked, the 
earth shook Then 1 uncovered /my face; I 

^foffhd that it was a serpent w'hirh was ap- 
proaching, lie, was thirty cubits long, and his 
tail was more than two cubits. His body was 

, covered with gold, and the rings around his 
eyes were as real "lapis lazuli. And the side 
was more splendid than the front. 

He opened his mouth to me while I was 
upon my stomach -before him, and said to me; 
"Who has brought thee, who has brought thee,

But none, but none so fair to me

style.— -Smart Set. 

Mr. George Bernard Sraw was recently ac- 
cused of "leaving Aristotle out" in his work- 
manship. Mr. Shaw recently explained him- 
self in a' letter to the London Times as follows : 
"Leaving Aristotle Out" 

Sir — The writer of the article under the 
above heading challenges me so repeatedly and 
pointedly that it would be discourteous to pass 
his article over without a word of explanation. 
Let me briefly offer him the following assur- 
ances: — ^ 

1. I am no party to Mr. Granville Baker's 
demand for the omission of Aristotle. 1 take 
the greatest pains to secure "unity of impres- 
sion, continuity,, and cumulative force of inter- 
est' ; and it is noteworthy that such mastery 
as I have been able to achieve has led me final- 
ly to the Greek form of drama, in which the 
unities of time and place are strictly observed. 
And whenever I find a cri,tic complaining that 
my plays are no plays because my scenes do not 
jump from Jerusalem to Madagascar, and my 
playbills are not filled with such aids to the 
spectator as. "Six weeks elapse between Acts 
L and II. and "two years between Acts II. and 
III.." I conclude that the critic has learnt his 
busuiess irom Sarcey, ami not from ^Aristotle. .. 

2. I entirely agree that "right views, sound 
opinions" are more desirable than "original 
views." At the same time. I regard a writer 
who it- convinced that his views are right and 
sound as a very dangerous kind of lunatic. 
He is to be foutfd in every asylum ; and his 
delusion is that he. is the Pope, or even a higher 
authority than the Pope. Original views, in* 
the sense — the only possible sense — of being 
sincere, unaffected, unborrowed views, are at 
least /'humanly attainable. This point has 
been admirably demonstrated Jay no less able 
a critic than Mr. A. B. Walkley, to' whose 
collected articles i would refer the author, of 
your weekly notes on the theatre. 

; 3. I most solemnly protest that I have never 
"told my critics how they ought to criticize 
mv next play." 1 have told them repeatedly 
how -they actually would criticize it; that is, 
"by falling victims to "the psychology of the 
rrnwrl" f\fr AValkley will explain"), and help- 
Icssly repeating a ridiculous litany ---first 
invented by the least con^netcnt and least 
iterate among them, and having-_jio relation . 
either - to the facts of the theatre or the science 
of critieism. And <>ti everv such occasion they 
have fulfilled mv prophecy to the letter. 

.4. I am quite an are that my phrase "the 
vituperation of the Press" would be neither 
accurate tlOt L'ratefu! if ihe Press consisted of 
The Tunes, which is apparentlv the onlv paner 
your contributor reads. Lnfortunately The 
Times is in this matter, as in others, an excep- 
tional paper. Let me state one' fact which 
-peaks for itself k'rotn C.ermanv I have for 

years pasl received repeated and urgent rc- 

nuests to allow- mv plays to be produced in the 
fust instance i" Berlin, on the ground that the 
ann« luucement s 1 .'f their unutterable tedium 
and disastrous failure \Vhieh invariably follow 
their pr oduct ion in Lon don makes it necessary 
to hold them back in Berlin until the verdict 
is forgotten Yott/ contributor is misled bv 
that "handsome tribute from criticism'-' which" 
< .insists in praisjj/r my old plays in order to 
throw into greater relief the infamy of my new' 
one-;. Thus "Misalliance" was unworthy of the 
author of "Getting Married": "Getting "Mar- 
ried" had none of the brilliance of "The Doc- 
tor's Dilemma"; "The Doctor's Dilemma" was 

a pitiful falling-off from "Major Barbara"; and 
nobody could sit out "Major Barbara" without 
asking why the author did not give us another 
masterpiece like "John Bull's Other Island"— 
poor "John Bull," which first established the 
tradition that my plays are not plays, but mere 
talk ! Substitute for these titles "The Marriage- 
of Ann Leete,"' "The Voysey Inheritance," 
"Waste," and "The Madras- House," and the 
story applies equally to Mr. Granville Barker. 
To say that "these reservations turn the wmole 
praise sour for us" is quite, true. - They do. 
When I am told that it is a ,pity that a man 
who only last year Was so honest as I should 
have become a thief, a liar, a blackguard, an 
incendiary, and a murderer, and I lose some 
thousands of pounds and a great deal of credit 
in consequence, it is perhaps ungrateful in me 
to overlook the compliment to my previous 
good character. It may even show an appetite 
for "indiscriminate and fulsome praise." But 
I cannot help it; I am built in that hypersensi- 
tive way. When I am held up to the world as 
a "go-as-you-please dramatist" I don't know 
exactly what is meant, and neither would Aris- 
totle; but for the life of me I cannot feel as if 
I were receiving "a handsome tribute from 
criticism," . I actually prefer the downright 
vituperation. , _ ~ 

5. I greatly regret that your contributor 
should have Succeeded in dashing the faith 
Mr. Walkley once had in my work. Mr. Walk- 
ley's very handsome tributes in Le Temps 
were the- beginning of my literary vogue in 
France. Even when he seized the opportunity 
of a recent public dinner to make a quite unpro- 
voked attack on the projected National Thea- 
tre, and to assure the public that he had allowed 
his obscurer fellow critics to convert him. to 
the vulgar view of the work at which Mr. Bar- 
ker and I are toiling — a view which I confess 
I cannot distinguish from the Roshcrville view 
of a Beethoven symphony — Lheld my peace. I 
shall continue to hold it, because my personal 
and private feelings are entirely friendly to

pose to "permit myself,", whenever, like Mrs. 
Gamp, I feel so. disposed, to do with his un- 
worthy cpllcaf.; in s w h a t Heine reproached Les- 
sing rot doing—namely, not only to cut off

It is a sad thing to be a widower. 

If a widower mopes around and won't min- 
gle in society and refuses to take part in any 
little innocent amusements, the women say he 
is putting it all on for fear folks will think his 
grief is not real. „ 

If he mourns for the conventional period 
and then begins to sit up and take notice, the 
women say he is a callous brute and they pity

him. f ~ - 

If he puts in all his spare time with his chil-

some motherly women and marry her and give, 
his children a real home. 

If he doesnlf spcnd all his spare time with 
his children, they say the poor little things are 
cruelly neglected, and that's what might be 
expected of a man, anyhow.^

« The Opening of the Shooting Season 

Since the publication of the regulations un- 
der the -Game Aet-for the open and closed 
seasons during 1910,. which will be found in an- 
other column, there has been much discussion 
and criticism of the decision to make the open- 
ing day for grouse shooting two weeks earlier 
.than it has been "for the last t wo seasons, many 

good sportsmen being of the opinion that ft is 
a great mistake to open the season at all before 
the First of October. It is a great pity that 
these opinions were not yp jced^i little earlier, 
as the powers that he, who are responsible for 
the framing of the regulations, were of course 
anxious to do wrjaUwas best hi the interests of 
present and future sport, and to help them in 
forming their conclusions were desirous "f 
~T, getting at the real opinions of those in a posi- 
tron to judge best of the conditions prevailing 
' in the various district- of the Province 

However, as there seeing to he a ver\ strong 
opinion against the opening of the season any 
earlier this year than last, and reports have 
—come in' from some dis tricts of small broods 

and backward birds, by all means let us give 

the birds the benefit of an)- doubt, and. prefer- 
ably, close down gfottse .-hooting altogether

Speaking of game law- remind- one of a 
good story heard the other day. It happened 
sunic years; ago now, .SO, if this catches the eye 
of the dame Warden, it h no use hi- coming 
to me f<>r evidence, besides it would only be 
hearsay anyway, and the lawyer of the office 
tells me that that doesn't COUht'j.SO here goes 
fof the yarn : 

They were two ardent shooters, and thev 
had had a long and weary day without a great 
deal to show for it Driving home in a buggy, 

they paid a call on a pn.mineut resident of the 
district in which they had been shooting, in the 

hope of getting a little liquid , , refreshment. 

Tliey were .'observed b) their host, a.- thev 
pulled up at hi- gate* to lake a sack from 1111 
der the seat of the buggy and cache it behind 
a bush at the side, of the 'road. Here was a 
mystery which had to be investigated at mice. 
After receiving h is- guests, the host excused 
himself for a moment to get the afore said re- 
freshmetit and seized the opportunity to -se- 
cure and e\amu*^*1he mysterious Back 

In it he fotmd "two hen phea-aht- ; tin- mur- 
der was out. Qf course' the right thing to do 
Was to denounce the offender- and hand them 
over to justice: but the discoverer of the crime 
saw his way to the administering of a bttle 
poetical justice, ami took upon himself to 
dole out the punishment 

He knew his men. and. "ii returning to 
ihem. he apologized for the fact that unfor- ' 
tunatelv hi- stock "f spirituous liquors was 
tciuporaril) out, but he had plenty of nice fresh 
milk. They drank the milk they were thirsty 
ami there was no whiskey : therefore, having 
drunk the milk, they took a -pecdv departure 
and Sorted lor other parts where there was 

something stronger to be had. 

On arriving in Victoria they pulled up at a 
certain restaurant presided over b\ a well 
known and di st in g uished r Fceneli cm f. and 
handed him the sack, with the requesl that he 
Wpttld see that justice was done t<> the pre 
paration of the pheasants, which they.told him 
ii contained, for their SUpper later in tin- even- 

Then they satisfied their thir-t ami returned 
after a good clean-up and a change of raiment, 
in anticipation" of the enjoyment of the re- 
Mtt'tS of their -kill ami the chef'-. The w< I 
•'••me- they recetverj was v en different hmii

The proprietor of the count n place, where 
he\ had been regaled with miller had" been 
practicing before they came along on the 
•rows in his orchard. It was only the work 
if a few seconds to make the exchange after he 
lad discovered what 1 -" ' Wa ff in that sack, and 
tomebody had pheasant for supper that even- 
ng, if not the men who shot them. 

More Poetical Justice 

Tt is of the same man as played host on this 
occasion that the story is told, that, being an- 
noyed at the way poaching gunners were in 
the habit of getting over his fence, taking a 
crack at his pheasants, and then, hiking for 
the road again, without his being able to catch 
them, he determined to get some incontroverti- 
ble evidence against some qf them. 

He therefore armed a man with a kodak and 
posted him behind the fence with instructions 
to get, if possible, a snapshot of anyone who 
should come over "trespassing in the pursuit 
of game." 

The photographer was lucky : he did not 
have a very long wait "before a hunter with 
gun and dog came within range, and was duly 
caught by the camera. There were no facilities 
at band, for developing the. plate, and it was 
despatched next morning to a Victoria profes- 
sional to be developed and printed. Imagine 
the astonishment of the photographer w hen, on 
developing the plate, he found an excellent rep- 
resentation of a man with a sun and a dog, the 
man himself, the gun and dog his own. II is- 
tor\ does not record what he did to that plate; 
but photographers are human, and it is aston- 
ishing what can be done b y a skillful operator.

It is nearly forty year.- -mce the United 
States Government awoke to the necessity of 
con-crying the fishery resources of the coun- 
try and began th~o- r elaborate operations in fa- 
vor of fishes, fishermen ami fish consumers in 

general. It w_a- thought to be a better policy 
to spend a certain amount of tlie public money 
m making fish SO abundant that they can be 
caught without restriction, and serve a-s~a- 
cheap food for the people at large, rather, than 
Spend a much larger sum in preventing the peo- 
p le from c at ching the few fish th at remained 
after gen'eraTions of improvidence". It v\ a- in

been sent to the market in the form of eggs. 

Last year the Government planted. 75,839,- 
43O trout eggs of all species. For brook trout 
eggs the Bureau depends largely on commer- 
cial trout raisers, eyed eggs being obtained 
from them at lower cost than it is possible to 
collect from wild fish at most places, or from 
brood fish maintained only for their eggs. 
About jS.fXX^QQo eggs are annually purchased 
from ten to eleven dealers. 

At some stations, however, eggs from wild 
trout 'are more satisfactory. It has been found 
that eggs in the domesticated fish, hatched and < 
reared in spring water, which is not subject to 
seasonable variation-, do not produce good re- 
sults. This j- especially so where the tern 
peratttre of- the water supply in the hatchery i-

this; the dogs are necessarily only partly brok-

Bureau's existence, the fishes that "were being 
regularly cultivated f were sha.d." carp , Chinook 
salmon. Atlantic salmon, landlocked salmon, 
rainbow trout. -brook trout and w hitct'i-h. The 
list is now six times as long, and the annual 
output i- leu times the aggregate tot the. ten 
year period ending in tc?8r. 

The main energies of the Bu reau are devot- 
ed to the multiplication ol the more important 

commercial fisheries, such as shad, whitefish, 
lake trout! Pacific salmon, white perch, yellow 
perch, cod! flatfish and t ho lobster, which are 
hatcked in lots ol many millions annually. Iii 
addition to these many game fishes are culti- 
vated, and although represent only about 
fen per cent of the output of the hat'chei ie-. 
this feature of the work is most important, as 
Supplying choice kinds of fish for public river-, 
lakes and pohds, for fishine preserves, and for 
private ponds and streams j n all parts of the 
I nitcd States. The fishes most in demand for 
those purposes are the landlocked salmon, dif 
ferent specie- of trout, greyling. the basses, the 

crappies, the -unfi-h and catfishes and" .various 

. Others*, thai are also handled. — - ' . 

The results of fi-h culture, as shows by 
numerous replenished waters and b\ actual re- 
turns in fish, nit^ht easily be made the subject 
ot length) reference, but is here alluded to in- 
cidentally. ( tne point to be' emphasized is that 
the fish-cultural work of the Bureau is of two 
classes, with respect to it- economy. Many of 
the RiOSt valuable food fishes, being 111 their 
prune for market pur.po-es just prior to the 
spaw nine Season, are most extensiveh cap- 
tured at the very time they should be spared 
for the perpetuation of their kind. Whenever 
possible the Bureau procures the egg's of these 
fish from the fi-hermcn. h'ulh ninety--i\ per 
vent of all the eggs o dlectcl and hatched bv 
the Bureau afe taken and fertilized from fishes 
destined for the market, and tin- without de- 
tracting from the value or edible qualities of 
the fish: , ; • , '. ■ " 

Some of the fre-h water -species, valued 
chiefly as game fi-he-. are cultivated b\ con- 
fining them under condition- which will se- 
cure the maximum reproduction by processes. 
Practically all the commercial fishes can 
propagated, and much more numerously, b\ 
stripping them of eggs' milk In hand and in- 
cubating the fertilized eggs in hatcheries. It is 
with thc-e that the Bureau is most largely cm 
cerned. their numbers being nearh ninclv- 
eight per cent of the entire output of tjie 
hatcheries </ 

The hatching jiroce -<•- are. generally 
speaking, of three classes with respect to 
equipment, determined primarily b\ the speci- 
fic gravity of the eggs. Heavy eggs, such as 

-fbi iSe of 1 1". nit. salm< »n and the greyHng, are in- 
cubated in wire bottomed trays, or wire bas- 
kets set in troughs pi running w^tcr. The 
Rriesfl 01 wire is of a --\7v to suit the size of egg. 
and' to permit the young fish as they hatch to 
drop through into tin trough. Tlie troughs 
are usually plain, open boxes, varying in length 

[roth twelve to sixteen feet, and m depth from 
four to twelve fitches to suit conditions. An ar- 
bitral \ width of fourteen inches, inside inea? 
ure. has been adopted, uniformity of width be- 
ing desirable for economy in interior equip- 

fish have attained a length of two or three 
inches. The kind of liver used .vacies at dif 
ferent- station-, that of sheep, beeves and hogs 
being extensively used and the relative value 

id each being in the order named. 'Idle E I 

tor ihe large fish consists of the liver, lungj 
and hearts of the annuals mentioned. 

The period of incubation of irottt eggs ,| ( - 
pendfi entirely on water temperature. In a 
temperature of ^o-degrees the eggs will hatch 
in about fifiv days, ddiat is rather high tem- 
perature for hatching, however, and for every 
degree lower it takes nearly ten days longer. 
In water at practically freezing lenipera lure, it 
requires nearly ^00 days to hatch the eggs. 

Tlte time that the fry carry the food sac 
dfrpends-on water temperature. .< Mdinarilv the 
Water temperature is a little higher .after the 
eggs are hatched, ami. of course, this means 
that the fry are ready for food much earlier. 
Thev take food immediately after the sac is en- 
tirely absorbed. .< 

The fry of all fish hatched from eggs, 
whether marine or fresh water, are supplied 
v\ith a food sac w hen hatched. The -ize of the 
sac va ries materially ami the period of incuba 
.lion of various fish aiso varies. Thar 'of the 

the exception, for when driven front one field 
the birds will alight in another.- and afford only 
indifferent" sport. In winter, should there be 
■ much snow, the pigeons become very hard 
pressed for food. All the clover layers and stub- 
bles are covered tog deeply, tor them to pick up 
. seed=en* gra t fE ; ^A"TiclTlHyfH : i^ ^ e s 

will then at t tact • large flocks and 'plenty id" 
shooting mav be had; bags of over a hundred 
birds in a day have been obtained by one gun. 

In winter, when the hedges arc bare 
of leav es, erecting a hut is a more difficult mat- 
ter. The best plan is to get. some brambles 
and intertwine them with Sticks, covering the 
w hole with grass. The brambles hold the grass 
in place, whereas it would slip off other sticks. 
The but should not be made too small; ample 
room should be left in which to turn freely in 

"for a right and left at crossing birds. Care 
should be taken not to make the hut too far' 
from the nearest tree. It is extraordinary 
what a quantity of shot .a pigeon will take be- 
fore succumbing, especially one sitting in the 
tree, where branches may impede mosi_o_f_thc 
shot. .Twenty yards is ample distance. Manv 
limes have I. made a lint at which 1 thought a 

, fair distance from the trees. Mv first few shots 

salmonidac ranges like trout w ith the tempe r- had no e ffect, except knocking out a few fcath- 

er.-. until I remade tlie hut several yards nearer. 


afure; the eggs of the shad hatch in a very few 
days at normal temperature, and the sac is 
USttally absorbed in two of three davs. 

P-ihcs are distributed at various stages of 
development, according to the. species, the 
number in the hatcheries, and the facilities for 
rearing. The commercial fishes-, hatched In 
lots of many millions, are necessarily planted 
as fry. It is customary to distribute them just 
before the umbilical sac ' is completely &U" 
sorbed : \llantic salmon, landlocked " salmon, 
and various species of trout, jn such numbers 
as the hatchery facilities permit. /Sonte are 
reared in fingerlings from one to.slxThches in 
length, the remainder are distributed a- m. 
The basses ami are distributed from 

the fish-cultural stations and ponds from some 

three weeks after they are hatched. uutjM hey., 
are sev eral months >>\ age. When the last lots 
are shipped the basses usually range from four 
td six inches, ami the SUnfishes from two to 
four inches/in length. The numerous fishes 
collected in overflowed land-— -ha — e-. crappies, 
sunfishes, catfishes. yellow perch, and others — 
are two to -ix inches in length when taken and 
distributed. Kggs are distributed only to state

The fish cultural Mork of the h'edei*al Gov 
eminent has now attained a magnitude that 
cattnot be readily comprehended, and is in 
creasing al a very rapid rate. This i s especial 
ly marked during the last ten years, owing 
partly lo the establishment of new station-, 
partlv to the extension of op?rftti»^r»^-arid exist- 
ing stations and largely to the greater effi 
viencv of methods and appliances. The work 
during the fiscal year up*) reached larger pro 
portions than ever before, wpt J,0OU,(.>O0 t 0O0 
being produced and planted. During the fis- 
cal year 1910 another record will be made, and

Mo«t people would as soon be accused of 
murdeT~as Of meanness. It is a characteristic 
scarcely less objectionable" to the average in- v 
dividual than cowardice, yet to a careful obser- 
ver it is promiscuously conspicuous, and in ,, 
quarters wherein it frequently lies unsuspect- 
ed by the Unintuitive. There is a well known 
man of an earlier generation who said his am- 
bition was "to be asked every where- and to-go 
nowhere." He was a poet, and above all, 
he was a philosopher. He knew human nature 
as well as that past master in the art of know- 
ledge — he who tempted Eve — for he had real- 
ized that there is nothing more craved for than , 
the reputation of generosity and he knew also 
that of the genuine commodity there is singu- 
larly little. 

"What am T going to get oi* of this? is the 
question which is at the back of the head of 
many when they giver — 

"Will Mrs. Bobbie Raines invite me back 
to a better dinner than I, am giving her? The 
question is weighed as carefully as ii it were 
a consideration of a question of state import- 
ance, before even the sprat is thrown to catch 
the salmon. A really mean man is a rara avis. 
I t see ms to be an unwritten law among them 
to pay back as generous!} as they have receiv- 
ed. To accept and not to return in so-nve form 
or another is unknown to their philosophy.

This type '</f garment catches dust like a 
carpet— and a carpet is frequently swept, 
but . That is a very tiresome sort of re- 
mark. I apologise for it, and am ready to re- 
peat it after the apology! 

1 do not "set" up to be cleaner than my 
neighbors. No enthusiastic gardener who 
gets as dirty as she is enthusiastic can ever 
hope to be considered clean by the friends 
who have caught her at it. No true Cockney, 
born and bred among smuts and fogs, like the 
writer, can ever hope to be considered un fog- 
ged and smutless for the rest of her days. "I 
think my lungs must look like a sponge used 
to mop up ink," said a London friend niedita 
lively.; "I'm .so glad I can't see them!" It is 
as well, perhaps, that there is a good deal that 
we "can't see." But it docs not apply to the 
dirt in our clothes. 

One thing J do which 1 recommend as wor- 
thy' of imitation — I have my old woollens 
washed. Mind, I do not counsel it. when they

test my white serge in summertime, and I find 
that the average tweed or serge washes as 
well as (and often better than) the average 
linen! , -. v - ' " -" . 

Because it is so seldom done, is that any 
reason for not doing it? 1 kttovy that not more 
.than one woman imti. hundred sends her winter 
skirts to the laundry; but why on earth donor 
the ninety and nine follow her example? In 
these days, when the "odd" skirt is much 
worn in 'the country, to accompany the many 
varieties of matching or contrasting woollen 
sweater (also When people agree with me that 
for real rough wear — to say nothing of mo'tof- 
i n o- — a long or three-quarter length coat to

jacket to match,, which is too hot in the house, 
and too cool for a winter "out of doors" !) there 
is no arguing awa\ the fact that washablem :SS 
is an immense asset. My own country days 
at present arc spent in a portion of the British 
Isles where no skirt short of (or longer than ) 
a kilt can be kept dry when it really rains.

Moreover, they give spontaneously, without 
even a thought of return. But the glaring 
and courageous 1 meanness of some women to. 
one another has no parallel as a ch aracteristic 
on this planet. If you want to sec it in its 
true colors, you have to go" to the women's 
clubs to hud it. One woman will in the most 
effusive manner and with her sweetest smile 
invite another member to tea. and look as 
toUnded if site comes unprovided with her 
purse to pay for the beverage. The "guest,"' 
unsophisticated creature! regards the imita- 
tion as a genuine one, site lias never dreamed 
of the necessity of paying for herself, and her 
embarrassment can be imagined. 

Men are poor things when it comes to ex- 
cuses to "put off" a friend. But a woman who 
in a wild bout of generosity has asked some 
one to partake of her hospitality, and then in 
calmer moments realized that she doesn't want 
them, will Stop at nothing to put them off. 
Catch her hesitate to tell her best friend not 
to come, and not finding excuses by the -core 
to justify her action in the other woman's 
sight! For not the least among woman's 
splendid gifts is her imagination, her grand 
self-possession and coolness in such circum- 
stances are worthy of all commendat ion. 

W here a man will bluster or stammer and 
contradict himself, women will he perfectly

air of sweet sincerity and diplomatic grace, 
they will manage not to make an enemy oi the 
victim. In fact, it is quite possible if the 
"guest" that was to he is of a generous nature 
herself — and far be it from me to suggest that 
there are not scores of high spirited and gener-

Cleanliness of Clothes 

In the old days, when we were rafrkcrle 
dirty than anybody else, we learnt to consider 
ourselves cl ean. I cannot put it any higher 
than that! I am not speaking of cleanliness 
of the body today, all the sari'ie. because the 
skin and the hair and matters of "beauty' 5 and 
Hygichr generally arc not exactly my pro 
vincc ; but I think the time has come w hen a 
few words as to cleanliness of clothes may be 
reasonably spoken. My most rooted objection 
to old clothes i.s that dirt — perhaps invisible- - 
pervades their whole being. How can it be 
otherwise? If you send your -tailor made gar- 
ments, your woollens, broadly Speaking tp the 
cleaners periodically, you arc an exceptional 
woman, and even then do you include your 
knock-about serge or twt*ed suit, your "odd" 
fhort skirt, your frieze coat that hangs in the

I do not think that any woman would go to 

either, extreme in tlie-tfeatment of hair or net, 
but they go quite far enough very often. ^ 

The "dear' old" rest gown"— not old in years, 
but old in smuts f— the Japanese dressing gown 
rllowed to get so soiled that the next visit to 
the cleaners vil] mean ch< fraying through of 
the silk at the hem and cuffs — the face veil

just to show you the result! — the motor veil 
that is expected to keep your hair clean with- 
out being clean itself —the furs that "come off" 
(without l-enig dyed I on guimpe and light 
gloves -tin- 'cloth suits that tell their own tale 
when the same light glove- clothe the hands 
that hold them up — the plain- colored silk en

called "floating ribs" (lines of soiling running 
down each steel rib, a' crease to mark the silk's 
folding)-, the Silken petticoat ruined in texture 
(and appearance!) by being worn too long 
uncleaiied "what a pity!" is the comment one 
applies to cach-a-nd every one of these things. 

In mapping OUt an allowance, how often 
the cleaner's and dyer's bill is 1 forgotten, and

to be said for civilization — and I admit that at 
times 1 ,av a good deal a gainst it! — at least it 
has taught us human beings cleanliness. As 
a rule the wilder the animal the more scrupu-

During the hearing of a recent cau?e cele- 
bre. a question of interest to modern society 
was raided by the judge and one of the coun- 
s el. It pra ctically amounted to this, that the 
jury, in cdhsMerl ng^t faeir verdict, were asked 
tVrTcflect whether it was possible to judge the 
c 6 u i h i cLjalnieiLjajid. wp m tn f the present day 
_b\ the same standard of morality as obtained, 
for example, in the day- of Jane Austen. In 
short; the question putbwas: Is this not an , 
age of practically unlimited social freedom 
between men and women? It is not an easy 
one I" answer offhand. True, times have 
changed; and men and w'omen with them. No 
one can deny that women nowadays can do 
without a question of impropriety, what would 
have jeojardized their reputations fifty or less 

years ago. ' 

To hive dined alone with a man at a res- 
taurant, to have gone out for the day with a 
man who was not husband or brother, would 
have been to court criticism, if not censure ; yet 
the modern halm of dining out and the. recre- 
ation of mOtoTuTg ha\e made bofb such thing? 
possible.. One could quote-many instances of 
the rev olution in social life, that proclaims the 
freedom existing between the sexes in these 
days. And if we judge men and women from 
the standpoint of our fathers and grandfathers, 
we must peril .ice come to the conclusion that 
our manners have grown Somewhat lax. Of 
course, it is argued, we have broader minds 
nowadays, and are able to understand that, 
with the process pf suns, our views have hap- 
ml\ so w idened 1 th at we have come to see that 
it is quite as possible for a man and woman to 
be good friends or "chums" as it is for two 1 
men or two w omen to be. )But, on the other 
band, we have to ask ourselves whether in any 
number of generations human nature really 
changes. And this does make the question con- 
cerning the great social freedom now permit- 
ted between the sexes a matter of moment. 

That times have changed is perfectly trite,

Thev were rough-looking customers, and in 
their ilt-fitting. much-worn garments, seemed 
sadly out of place amidst the luxurious sur- 
rounding of the large, ha.ll. So apparently 
thought two Chinese boys, who were busily en 

gaged in dusting the corridor ; they spied the 
strangers, and eyeing them askance frith true 
Oriental suspicion, flashed off post haste to 
arouse Manager Jackson and spread the alarm 
that thieves had broken into the hotel. 

Two of these men. dressed as 'fishermen, 
with long rubber boots-, yellow slickers and 
sou'westers. which were none too clean and

and down the retort, while their companions,

Suddenly, with : a soft, purring sound, the

stepped out. "Stand by!"

"You might make a useful salmon fisher," 
volunteered the tug captain — "but it'd take you

• When, an hour later, having played his little 
"age of rnan," he clambered back on to the 
Czar's spotless deck, he oozed water from all 
parts and spread an ungracious odor far and 
near., — — - r ' . .' , --r 

,"Not near rhe, thanks!" said the Heavy Vil-

"What do you think you'd scale now?" 
queried the Comedian as he winked across at 
the "Mad man." 

"This must be Friday," said the captain, as 
he nodded to the chink to take what the gods 
gave him. and lay in a supply of the needful. 

"Just: wait till I photograph that," said the 
Iianky One, as a huge skate drifted slowly to 
the surface. My fortune's made if I can put 
thad oh a plate." 

"Would you eat that?" asked the little man, 
recoiling in horror at the idea. "Would you?" 

"I mean a photographic plate," answered 
the Lanky One quickly; "I mean a negative." 

"And the last salmon came over the side,' 
the nets were dropped again,, and the tugs 
saluted each other and drifted apart. 

And they'll tell you that moving picture

easy time, and a gay life; that anybody can fill 
the roles. 

And so Captain Spring-all swung the Czar 
into the tide rac.e once more, and with the ma- 
jority of the actors sprawling in restful posi- 
tions here and there fin the fleck, the Edison 
Compauv returned again to the city with one 
of the finest "fish" stories' ever to be told, 
locked safely away ip the big black camera.
